Center for Therapeutic Apheresis

Apheresis and immunoadsorbtion

Therapeutic apheresis is an effective treatment option for autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, CIDP (Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy) and lupus erythematosus, as well as for experimental therapy in ME/CFS, poisonings, and macular degeneration.

For patients with genetically elevated blood lipid levels (hyperlipidemia), we offer two blood purification procedures (plasma separation and DS apheresis).

Adacolumn, an adsorptive carrier-based apheresis device, has demonstrated promising efficacy in the treatment of autoimmune diseases such as ulcerative colitis (UC), Crohn’s disease (CD), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This therapeutic option is available for individuals seeking treatment for these conditions.

Please contact the Apheresis Center in advance so that we can work together to schedule the appropriate apheresis session for you.
