Non-specific removal of antibodies in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy: implications for xenotransplantation.


We assessed the efficiency of non-specific extracorporeal immunoadsorption (EIA), using polyclonal anti-human immunoglobulin antibodies, in depleting the serum of anti-galactosealpha1,3galactose (Gal) antibody and in decreasing serum cytotoxicity in 5 patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. The mean concentrations of anti-Gal immunoglobulin (Ig)M… (More)
