Immunoadsorption Columns Market Overview
Immunoadsorption columns have been widely employed for the purification of specific antibodies and antigens. In immunoadsorption columns, plasma is removed by apheresis and passed on through an adsorption medium to remove harmful antibodies, following which it is re-infused into the patient.
Immunoadsorption columns are increasingly being recognised as a promising and low-risk therapy option in a variety of cardiac, haematological, neurological and various other disorders. Immunoadsorption columns are also being increasingly recognised as a useful therapeutic option for various chronic and acute disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barre, myasthenia gravis, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy and autoimmune encephalitis.
Using immunoadsorption columns, plasma components are separated by adsorber systems that are designed to selectively bind immunoglobulins. The preservation of plasma proteins, such as coagulation factors, albumin and lower shift of blood volumes, during a procedure is one of the advantages of immunoadsorption columns over other conventional techniques such as plasma exchange.
Various different adsorbers, such as tryptophan, protein A or polyclonal sheep antibodies, can be used alone with immunoadsorption columns. Immunoadsorption columns with protein A or sheep antibodies enable more selective removal of immunoglobulins as well as regenerating mechanisms.
Most of the modern immunoadsorption columns contain 2 columns that undergo alternating loading and regeneration cycles, which assists in saving time for even larger blood volumes to be processed.
Immunoadsorption Columns Market: Drivers and Restraints
The growing prevalence and recurrence of cardiac, neurological, dermatological and rheumatologial anomalies is expected to be one of the major factors driving the immunoadsorption columns market over the forecast period. According to Centers for Medical & Medicare services, the prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis is 0.5% to 2.0% of the global population, with a female to male ratio of 2.5:1. Rheumatoid arthritis is known to result in considerable disability and has a higher-than-expected mortality. However, uncertainties in the treatment available for this disorder as well as the high prices for treatment are some of the factors that are likely to restrain the growth of the immunoadsorption market.
