The poster "Selective CRP apheresis as a new treatment option in acute myocardial infarction (CAMI1 study)" by Prof. Dr. Christoph Garlichs was awarded a poster prize at the 84th Annual Meeting of the DGK.
The article describes for the first time the treatment of a patient after an acute myocardial infarction (STEMI) with the PentraSorb® CRP. The patient was treated twice with immunapheresis and tolerated the treatment without side effects. The CRP concentration could be reduced by approx. 45%.
