Immunoadsorption

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Immunoadsorption is an alternative blood purification technique[1] used to eliminate pathogenic antibodies[2][3][4]

The technique shows results with rare side effects and a maximum elimination of pathogenic immunoglobulins from the blood.[1][5][6][7][8]

Immunoadsorption makes it possible to trap, or selectively remove, an antigen against which an antibody is directed from a mixture of antigens in solution. The opposite is also true-traping or selectively removing, the antigen-specific antibodies from a mixture of antibodies, using the specific antigen.
