We investigated the clinical efficacy of direct hemoperfusion with a beta2-microglobulin (beta2-m) adsorption column for the treatment of patients with dialysis-related amyloidosis. A 2-year prospective controlled study was performed to compare the effects of passaging blood through a (beta2-m) adsorption column (Lixelle) before it is passaged through the dialysis polysulfone membrane on the severity of amyloidosis in these individuals. Patients (n = 22) whose blood went through the Lixelle… CONTINUE READING
