Abstract

The biocompatibility of liver and kidney support hemoperfusion systems operating in-vitro with blood taken from a number of donors was investigated. The liver support system, aimed at the specific removal of Bilirubin, consisted of a column of Dowex 1X2 beads coated with an Acrylic polymer and a crosslinked Albumin. The kidney support system, aimed at the specific removal of phosphate ions, consisted of a packed-bed of alumina particles coated with a modified collodion. Comparison tests with empty columns show that the adsorbents do not significantly affect the depletion of erythrocytes leukocytes and thrombocytes.
