Therapeutic Apheresis in Transplantology

Background: The problem of organ transplantation is still far from being solved. Until now, to eliminate both acute and chronic rejection, medicines with many side complications are used.

Methods: At the same time, apheresis therapy methods aimed at removing antibodies from the body have not received enough proper and timely application.

Results: Among them plasmapheresis plays the leading role, which can be used to block both acute and chronic rejection of the transplanted organs as well as transplant-against-host reactions, giving less toxic doses of drugs.

Conclusion: The main aim of this work was to find evidence of the need for wider application of apheresis technologies in transplantation.
