FRACTIOPLAS®19* – USE OF THE PRODUCT
Therapeutic apheresis includes various types of extracorporeal removal of harmful substances or therapeutically active components from the blood or blood plasma. Today, new methods of treatment based on blood filtration enable new therapies for a wide range of patients and indications. One example is LDL apheresis, which eliminates the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol particle from the bloodstream in patients with familial hypercholesterolaemia. LDL cholesterol, which is referred to as "bad cholesterol," plays a role in the development of atherosclerosis.
It increases the risk of coronary disease, heart attack and even death. When conventional lipid-lowering treatment fails to reduce elevated LDL cholesterol to the desired level, LDL apheresis is a viable and effective option.
