Blood purification therapy for gastrointestinal disease
What is virus removal therapy?
 
 
Ms. Asahi (nurse)
Virus removal therapy involves taking the blood once outside the body, passing it through medical devices, and thereby removing the virus from the blood. The blood from which the virus has been removed is returned to the body.
 
Dr. Kaneko
Treatment that removes the blood from the body is called blood purification therapy. It is applied to various types of diseases in Japan, Europe, and the U.S.A. In Japan, Virus removal therapy is covered by the national health insurance from April 2008 for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C. Applicable patients are those with a large volume of the virus and who receive interferon therapy.
