Recently, 'super high-flux' (SHF) or 'high cut-off' (HCO) membranes have been developed to increase the clearance of inflammatory mediators. In the experimental and clinical settings, SHF/HCO membranes appear to achieve greater clearance of inflammatory cytokines than conventional high-flux membranes. SHF/HCO membranes also restore immune cell function, attenuate hemodynamic instability and decrease plasma IL-6 levels. Moreover, SHF/HCO membranes can eliminate larger late-phase inflammatory… CONTINUE READING
