The molecular adsorbent recycling system (MARS) represents a cell-free, extracorporeal, liver assistance method for the removal of both albumin-bound and water-soluble endogenous toxins. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the short- and long-term removal capacity and selectivity of the different inbuilt dialysers and adsorption columns (uncoated charcoal, anion exchanger resin). Levels of endogenous toxins and parameters of hepatic synthesis and necrosis were therefore monitored… 
Detoxifying Capacity and Kinetics of Prometheus® – A New Extracorporeal System for the Treatment of Liver Failure
TLDR
The data suggest that the rate and efficacy of removal of albumin-bound toxins is related to both the strength of the albumin binding and the saturation of the adsorption columns.
Depurative capacity of molecular adsorbent recycling system (MARS): A focus on bilirubin removal
The molecular adsorbent recycling system (MARS) is now widely used in the treatment of patients with hepatic failure (HF). A great deal of interest has been directed toward its effect on clinical
Prometheus versus molecular adsorbents recirculating system: comparison of efficiency in two different liver detoxification devices.
TLDR
A significant decline in the serum level of water-soluble and protein-bound toxins was achieved with both devices, and PROM produces higher blood clearances for most toxins, which results in higher delivered treatment doses compared with a matching treatment with MARS.
Equipment review: The molecular adsorbents recirculating system (MARS®)
TLDR
Preliminary experience with MARS therapy, instituted late in the clinical course of five patients with severely impaired liver function, indicates some clinical efficacy, but the overall survival rate remained poor and the overall impact on outcome remained poor.
Review Equipment review: The molecular adsorbents recirculating
TLDR
Preliminary experience with MARS therapy, instituted late in the clinical course of five patients with severely impaired liver function, indicates some clinical efficacy, but the overall survival rate remained poor and the overall impact on outcome remained poor.
A new method to increase the adsorption of protein-bound toxins in artificial liver support systems.
TLDR
The results show that when this preconcentration method is used, the mass transfer rate of bilirubin from solution to activated carbon is enhanced, the adsorbed bilirUBin amount per unit mass ofactivated carbon is greatly increased, and more albumin-bound bilirubs molecules are quickly removed from the albumin solution.
Bilirubin removal from albumin‐containing solutions: dynamic adsorption on anionic resin
In this paper, kinetics of unconjugated bilirubin adsorption in fixed-bed anionic resin columns was investigated. Experimental breakthrough curves were determined at different feed flow rates and
The molecular adsorbent recycling system (MARS) and transmembrane transport of albumin‐bound toxins
TLDR
It has been demonstrated that in the in vivo situation, up to 60% to 80% of bilirubin binds to albumin by tight, presumably covalent, links and covalently bound bilirUBin becomes more important in patients with prolonged cholestasis.
A modeling study of bilirubin kinetics during Molecular Adsorbent Recirculating System sessions.
TLDR
The results suggest that the model may be used a priori to achieve a satisfactory prediction of the overall bilirubin removal, as well as a posteriori for the estimation of device parameters.
The molecular adsorbent recirculating system (MARS
TLDR
If MARS® gains increased acceptance, Australian critical care nurses are well placed to manage this new therapy using their past Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) experience as a foundation for learning a new extracorporeal organ support technique.

Extracorporeal detoxification using the molecular adsorbent recirculating system for critically ill patients with liver failure.
TLDR
It is concluded that the molecular adsorbent recirculating system can contribute to the treatment of critically ill patients with liver failure and different underlying diseases.
Molecular adsorbent recycling system (MARS): clinical results of a new membrane-based blood purification system for bioartificial liver support.
TLDR
A new membrane separation system that is nearly impermeable to proteins but enables the exchange of water soluble and protein bound toxins by a special membrane and a recycled protein containing dialysate is described.
Role of the molecular adsorbent recycling system (MARS) in the treatment of patients with acute exacerbation of chronic liver failure
TLDR
Applying MARS treatments to patients with acute exacerbation of chronic liver disease can detoxify blood, improve cerebral circulation, and reduce brain edema, as reflected by the reduction in intracranial pressure and jugular bulb oxygen saturation values in the authors' patients.

TLDR
In treating liver failure and cholestasis, MARS was associated with hemodynamic stabilization, improvement of hepatic and kidney function, and disappearance of pruritus, and a prospective, randomized, controlled trial of MARS treatment was able to prolong survival time significantly.

TLDR
Despite technical refinements compared with charcoal hemoperfusion,Biocompatibility of sorbent suspension dialysis is still very limited and it is suggested further developments in design and appropriate strategies of anticoagulation to improve the biocompatible of artificial liver support.
Intradialytic removal of protein-bound uraemic toxins: role of solute characteristics and of dialyser membrane.
TLDR
Urea and creatinine are far more efficiently removed than the other compounds under study, except for hippuric acid, and compared with the LF membrane these HF membranes do not appear to be superior in removing the studied compounds.
Fractionated plasma separation and adsorption system: a novel system for blood purification to remove albumin bound substances.
TLDR
In comparison to other systems (for example, the Molecular Adsorbent Recirculating System [MARS] and albumin dialysis systems), the FPSA system enables much higher elimination of strongly bound albumin substances.

TLDR
The presented hybrid membrane may be used like an “intellegent membrane” as a safety barrier between the patients blood and cell devices and a significant reduction of protein bound toxins and a transport of metabolically relevant solutes, like amino acids, was shown.

It is concluded that in acute excretory failure caused by a chronic liver disease, this treatment provides a therapy option to remove toxins involved in multiorgan dysfunction secondary to liver failure.
