This structure minimizes undesired effects on blood cells while still offering a maximal surface and number of binding sites for the peptide. When used clinically, the product is highly efficient in capturing lethal endotoxins. Housed in a small and smart column, the Alteco®LPS Adsorber is easy to use for extracorporeal treatment in any intensive care unit.
The Alteco® LPS Adsorber is a Class IIa medical device and does not contain any pharmaceutical or toxic components. Its high affinity to the Lipid A moiety of the endotoxin molecule by hydrophobic and ionic interactions, ensures efficient reduction of endotoxins from different bacteria species, as this component of the endotoxin molecule is constant.
Usage of the Alteco® LPS Adsorber has no reported side effects, contraindications or known drug interactions. Studies show that it offers an efficient means of treatment for patients suffering from endotoxemia and sepsis, and has successfully been used in ICU’s around the world since 2007.
