Many health disorders are caused by the circulation of harmful substances in the blood. Modern methods of removing some of these substances from a patient’s bloodstream are severely limited: they are expensive, require long treatment times and are non-specific, removing “good” components alongside “bad” ones. Pharmaceutical approaches aimed at blocking or destroying harmful substances in blood have similar limitations, as well as toxic side-effects.
The MediSieve System with the MediSieve Filter and Magnet as principal components can selectively remove these substances from the bloodstream by continuously circulating a patient’s blood through the system, similarly to dialysis. The technology uses targeted magnetic particles, which bind specifically to the targets in the bloodstream that doctors want to remove. The MediSieve Filter captures the particles and the targets bound to them, preventing them from flowing back into the body. The magnetic particles are infused directly into the external blood loop and therefore stay outside of the body. Using this method, the MediSieve system can remove a wide variety of different targets with high efficiency and specificity.
Uniquely for Malaria, no infusion of targeted magnetic particles is required due to the magnetic nature of Malaria infected cells. The MediSieve Filter and Magnet can therefore capture Malaria infected cells directly, without the need for magnetic particles.
