Low Density Lipoprotein LDL Apheresis

Low Density Lipoprotein LDL Apheresis


It is the selective removal of low-density lipoproteins in the blood and the return of the remaining components. Various means are available, such as charge-dependent (dextran sulfate and / or polyacrylate), size (double membrane filtration-DFPP), low pH precipitation formation (HELP), or immuno-adsorption with anti-Apo B-100 antibodies capable of removing LDL cholesterol.
