The PATH-2 Study is a pragmatic multi-centre, blinded, randomised placebo-controlled trial comparing Platelet Rich Plasma injection (PRP) to placebo (imitation) injection in adults with Achilles tendon rupture (ATR). Two sub-studies are embedded within the main study to contribute to the understanding of the PRP mechanism in tendon healing.
