Alteco LPS Adsorber is a medical device for extracorporeal treatment, capable of removing circulating endotoxin in blood by specific elimination.

The product is intended for the treatment of endotoxemia and/or sepsis or septic shock caused by suspected or verified gram-negative bacteria.

Applications

Preventive endotoxin removal in cardiac surgery

Endotoxin from gram-negative bacteria is a potent trigger of the inflammatory response, and endotoxemia is known to occur in cardiac surgery using extracorporeal circulation.

Endotoxin removal

Inside the Alteco LPS Adsorber, a tailor-made synthetic peptide binds to Lipid A; the toxic part of endotoxin. By adsorbing harmful levels of endotoxin from the patient’s bloodstream during extracorporeal treatment in the ICU, the Alteco LPS Adsorber breaks the chain of immune system over-reactions that can spiral into septic shock. This can turn the course of sepsis and stabilize the patient’s hemodynamic parameters in 2 hours. 2

Turn the course of sepsis

High levels of endotoxin activity are associated with organ failure and death. 3 Therefore, starting treatment early is important. Use the Alteco LPS Adsorber to counteract the critical and life-threatening part of the sepsis process. Remove endotoxin from the bloodstream to regain control over the systemic failure and stabilize the patient in the acute situation.

Treatment results

Post treatment, patients usually demonstrate a reduction in endotoxin, procalcitonin and lactate levels, a reduction or elimination of vasopressor support, stability and improvement in hemodynamic parameters as well as SOFA score.
