Global Apheresis Equipment Market to Reach US$2.3 Billion by 2018

In the past few decades, the medical community all across the world has increasingly engaged in the use of apheresis. In therapeutic apheresis, a patient’s plasma or blood cellular parts are split and removed from the blood and replaced by substitute plasma or substitute blood fluids. The rationale behind apheresis is that the abnormal substances or cells in the patient’s blood are removed through apheresis, thereby leading to cure or control of the disease.

Therapeutic apheresis is not a new application, but its extent and scope has rapidly grown in the last two decades. At present, apheresis is primarily accepted as an acute therapeutic method in a variety of diseases, and millions of patients undergo the treatment every year. Today, apheresis is being evaluated as a treatment option for a wide range of chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, different forms of cancer, polyneuropathies, multiple sclerosis, and others.
