ntv has broadcast an interview with Dr. Ahmed Sheriff about CRP apheresis for COVID-19 patients. Among other things, they talk about the lack of funding for medical devices in the Corona Pandemic.

Since the PentraSorb® CRP adsorber for CRP apheresis is a medical device, it has not yet been possible to obtain funding for a necessary clinical trial. The focus of the German government has so far only been on vaccines and drugs.

The interview was also used by RTL and can be viewed in German here or read in German here .
