Resin Based Immunotherapy Treatments

Leukapheresis immunotherapy involves the selective removal of specific cells from blood by using adsorbents coupled with specific ligands. These resins are suitable for treatment of diseases such as:

  • Cancer

  • Diabetes

  • Obesity

  • Allergies

  • Atherosclerosis

Another emerging application of Leukapheresis Immunotherapy is the treatment of patients who are due to have organ transplants. Patients need to have immunoglobulins removed as these antibodies can lead to transplanted organs being rejected. This new treatment uses affinity ligands and is administered a few days prior to the operation. This procedure can improve life expectancy by as much as 30% in some cases.
