Impaired function of platelet membrane glycoprotein IIb-IIIa in end-stage renal disease.
Impaired platelet function and a bleeding tendency are well-recognized complications of chronic renal failure. Because the fibrinogen receptor GPIIb-IIIa plays a central role in platelet aggregationExpand

Platelet activation and interaction with leucocytes in patients with sepsis or multiple organ failure
Abstract. This study focuses on the role of platelet membrane glycoproteins and platelet‐leucocyte adhesion in patients with sepsis and multiple organ failure (MOF). Specifically, the study raisesExpand

Comparative evaluation of filters used in membrane plasmapheresis.
Protocols were developed for in vivo and in vitro characterization of the mass transfer performance of filters intended for use in membrane plasmapheresis. The protocols were applied to all presentlyExpand

LDL hemoperfusion--a new procedure for LDL apheresis: first clinical application of an LDL adsorber compatible with human whole blood.
To date, lipid apheresis procedures can remove low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (LDL-C) only from plasma. Thus, initially plasma has to be separated from the blood cells, which increases theExpand

Platelet-leukocyte aggregation during hemodialysis.
Hemodialysis is associated with simultaneous changes in leukocytes and platelets, but it is unclear whether these alterations affect the interactions between these cell types. To evaluate thisExpand

Microspheres based detoxification system: a new method in convective blood purification.
A variety of protein-bound or hydrophobic substances, accumulating as a result of pathologic conditions such as exogenous or endogenous intoxications, are removed poorly by conventionalExpand
