"Double-filtration plasma exchange therapy" that cleanses the blood

This therapy involves circulating the blood outside the body for about 3-4 hours and removing the permeability-related factors present in the plasma of the elderly through a special filter.
It is expected to not only treat inflammation, allergies, autoimmune diseases, hyperlipidemia, arteriosclerosis, and other conditions, but also to have a preventive effect on cerebrovascular and cardiovascular disorders and aging.

Before and after the treatment, many people report feeling an improvement in overall health, such as "clear improvements in cholesterol levels, inflammation-related factor levels, and excessive autoimmune levels" and "feeling more youthful and energetic".

The "DFPP" method used at CLINIC 9ru
CLINIC 9ruで行っている「DFPP」という手法

There are three types of plasma exchange therapies: "simple plasma exchange (PE)", "double-filtration plasma exchange (DFPP)", and "plasma adsorption (IAPP)".

"DFPP" separates plasma from blood using a membrane plasma separator and passes it through a secondary filtration membrane to remove pathogenic substances present in the plasma. Substances that cannot pass through the secondary filtration membrane are removed, and those that can are returned to the body.

To prevent hypoalbuminemia (a condition in which albumin, a protein present in the blood, is lower than normal), albumin solution is supplemented.

"Effects of Double Filtration Plasmapheresis"
  • Purification of blood
  • Removal of pathological aging factors
  • Improvement of physical condition
  • Prevention of vascular diseases
Frequenlty asked questions
  • What is the difference between dialysis and your treatment?
  • Dialysis is a treatment that is usually given to people with kidney failure. However, our hospital also has the effect of preventing arteriosclerosis, myocardial infarction, and cerebral infarction by removing triglycerides and LDL (bad cholesterol).
  • How much blood will be purified?
  • We plan to use approximately 8% of the blood weight that a person has, which is about 1,500 ml for men and 1,200-1,300 ml for women. This amount may vary depending on age and weight.
  • Do you have any side effects?
  • Occasionally, there may be a decrease in blood pressure or discomfort.
  • How long is the treatment time?
  • Please expect the treatment to take about 2-3 hours. Since needles will be inserted into both arms, you will generally need to remain still during the procedure, but you will be able to watch movies on Netflix or other media during the treatment.
Flow of Treatment
  • step 1
    STEP 1
    The treatment time is about 2-3 hours.
    Nurses and clinical engineering technicians will be present in the room, so you can receive the treatment with peace of mind.
  • step 2
    STEP 2
    We will insert one needle each into both arms.
    The needle used is about two sizes larger than the one used for a typical drip. One arm will be used to extract blood (aspiration), while the other arm will be used to return blood (infusion).
  • step 3
    STEP 3
    We purify your blood.
    During the blood purification, approximately 4,000-5,000 ml of blood will circulate, and we plan to purify 1,500 ml for men and 1,200-1,300 ml for women of plasma.
    However, these conditions may vary depending on age and body weight.
  • step 4
    STEP 4
    We will perform hemostasis.
    You can leave immediately after sufficient hemostasis is achieved. Please consume enough nutrients and fluids after the treatment. You can take a bath after the treatment, but please refrain from vigorous exercise.
