Hemopurifier Filter Removes Ebola, Hep C, Metastatic Melanoma
Hemopurifier: What is It?
Filtering infectious pathogens and cancer cells directly from whole blood is extremely difficult.
In the case of Ebola, a successful response to a single administration of Hemopurifier therapy (comatose physician with multiple organ failure at the time), led to Time Magazine naming the Hemopurifier to be one of the “Top 25 Inventions” as well as one of the “Eleven Most Remarkable Advances in Healthcare.”
Status of Clinical Studies
Beyond human treatment experiences, pre-clinical studies demonstrated successful capture of viral threats such as Chikungunya, Dengue, West Nile virus, Vaccinia, and Monkey pox.
Specific to pandemic influenza threats, the filter captured H5N1 avian flu, H1N1 swine flu, and the reconstructed 1918 influenza virus, which killed an estimated 50 million victims in 1918 and 1919. In addition, vitro studies of other viral threats are ongoing.
How It Works
The filter works the same way as Dialysis treatment. Patients are hooked up from four to six and a half hours in a relaxed environment.
