The medical application of an immobilized enzyme or antibody is defined as the use of bound biologically active materials (BBAM) to treat some disease or clinically defined state such as poisoning. The immobilized enzyme or antibody may be used outside the body, ex vivo or extracorporeally, or as an implant in the body, in vivo
