An Australian and new zealand research team investigates the impact of albumin and large middle molecules on renal patients

Challenge:
Patients are burdened by cardiovascular diseases, chronic inflammation and the consequences of secondary immune deficiency which translates tinto high infection rates that can lead to hospitalization for patients.

The Approach:
The Team is looking over a six-month period to see firstly that patients don't become harmed through excessive albumin loss on the dialyser and we will secondly be


looking at its efficiency for clearing large middle molecules. Specifically, the Team will be studying lambda free light chain as one of the largest molecules in this class of toxins.
