What is Alpha-2-Macroglobulin (A2M)?
Alpha 2 Macroglobulin (A2M) is a protein that occurs naturally in your body’s blood plasma. A2M is produced by the liver and can be found in high quantities in the blood and is produced in response to a joint or cartilage injury. The naturally occurring A2M found in the blood is too large to travel into joint or disc space on its own, which is why supplemental injections of A2M can be beneficial for patients suffering from diseases like osteoarthritis? A2M is known as a broad spectrum multi-purpose protease inhibitor that deactivates the destructive enzymes, or proteases, that damage the cartilage in the joints.
Uses for A2M
- To improve and restore joint health
- To reduce inflammation and joint pain
- To prevent further tissue breakdown
What can I expect during an injection session?
A2M injections are derived from your own blood so there is little chance of adverse reaction or the body rejecting the treatment. During the procedure, a member of our staff will draw a small amount of blood from your arm. A centrifuge will be used to separate the red and yellow plasma from each other, and then the plasma will be placed through a filtration process to completely isolate the yellow plasma. The yellow plasma, which contains concentrated levels of A2M, will be injected into the inflamed or painful joints. Multiple areas can be treated during one injection session. Most patients are able to return to their daily routines immediately following a treatment session.
When will I experience results?
Many patients experience an improvement in mobility and a reduction in pain within the first day of an injection session. Results may vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of your condition, your age, and lifestyle.
Am I a candidate?
During your initial consultation, we will review your medical history, overall health, and specific condition and determine if this is the appropriate treatment for you. If you are a candidate for A2M injections, we will develop a customized treatment plan to help you achieve optimal results.
