Myth Five: The cellular content of bone marrow declines uniformly with age.

With this discussion, you’ll learn about how marrow degrades, which is not uniformly. At youth, all your marrow will respond. As you age, your spine and hip can respond in much the same way. Andrew said, “Mechanically transplanting rich marrow compensates for the decline that happens with age. Bone marrow donors are also accepted up to the age of 60. Looking at some research on the topic, we find that there is not a strong correlation between age and the amount of marrow.”

Myth Three: Filtering marrow improves the biologic

Myth Three: Filtering marrow improves the biologic

Filtering BMA may actually reduce the cellularity of the biologic, but it’s a necessary step. What is drawn, and what the researcher is seeking to look at, are spicules–which are soft tissue drawn from wringing the spongy marrow. Andrew provides a comparison of unfiltered vs filtered, finding that filtering doesn’t improve the quality. “There’s no indication that filtering helps, however, companies have to filter for the centrifuge to work,” Andrew noted.
