The information on this site does not replace your doctor's advice; only your doctor can assess the benefits and risks of therapy to determine whether LDL Apheresis using the LIPOSORBER® system is right for you.

The Liposorber LA-15 LDL Apheresis System is used for performing LDL Apheresis to acutely remove LDL-C (“bad cholesterol”) from the patient’s plasma. It is comprised of a tubing set, a hollow fiber plasma separator (Sulflux KP-05) and two dextran sulfate LDL-adsorption columns (Liposorber LA-15), which is our patented technology. The MA-03 is the computer-automated system that controls the entire LDL Apheresis procedure.

Familial Hypercholesterolemia) for whom diet has been ineffective and maximum drug therapy (such as Statins) has either been ineffective or not tolerated:
