Medical Milestone: Blood Group Antibodies Removed Using Glycosorb Columns
On 14th August, a significant medical milestone was achieved at the Lithuanian Health Science Hospital, Kaunas Clinics. For the first time in the Baltic States, a plasma immunosorption procedure was successfully conducted to eliminate specific Anti-A/B antibodies from the bloodstream, without affecting other antibodies or blood proteins. This innovative procedure was made possible through the utilization of Glycosorb adsorption columns, manufactured by Glycorex AB, Sweden, and supplied by Renalpharma. This achievement marks a noteworthy advancement in incompatible blood group transplantation, offers better outcomes and more options to patients waiting for transplant in the region.
