Medical devices, namely absorption and polymeric absorption materials for removing drugs in the case of drug overdose or therapeutic agents from blood and blood fractions
On Thursday, February 06, 2014, a U.S. federal trademark registration was filed for CONTRASTSORB by CYTOSORBENTS, INC.,
The description provided to the USPTO for CONTRASTSORB is Medical devices, namely absorption and polymeric absorption materials for removing radiologic contrast materials from blood and blood fractions.
Imagine what will happen if the next Ebola patient has a Cytosorb filter to battle the cytokine storm these patients face.
We initiated a continuous haemodiafiltration (Fresenius CiCa Multifiltrate; Fresenius, Bad Homburg, Germany). The calcium-citrate approach chosen bore less of a risk for haemorrhage. This therapy was given continuously up to day 27. Urine production restarted on day 22. Because phosphate was still elevated, the patient was continued with intermittent haemodialysis every 48 h until day 37.
NBC is a joke, unlike a true medical journal that only publishes the facts.
Another Lancet Ebola paper:
Their attempt to administer a course of favipiravir was abandoned quickly due to problems with dosing, underscoring the difficulties of giving drugs to patients with EVD. A virus-binding haemofiltration cartridge was also tried, but seems to have had little effect on viraemia.
Vascular leakage can lead to multiorgan failure induced by oedematous tissue damage. The question of whether the release of cytokines or interaction of viral proteins with the endothelium itself causes the leakage in Ebola virus disease is still under debate. Early in infection, the cytokines released from infected macrophages are thought to induce leakage
I expect a jump on the Aethlon filter report, Fresenius used a filter on that patient and should another patient be treated most likely it will be a Cytosorb filter in its place.
yes and it said the filter did not remove virus,,,,
It did not remove enough to be of use.
First the patient was stabilized before they added the second filter, the Fresenius filter removed the virus also if you had read the Lancet.
Africa is hopeless for the proper treatment, I have yet to hear of a dialysis machine in use in Sierra Leone. I also read yesterday a building used for storing one of the experimental drugs had burned down and thousands of doses lost. Why was this doctor not flown out like the others?
This information comes directly from a top medical journal the "Lancet" published yesterday from the 10 top doctors that treated him.
It is fact and it is published in the Lancet, also there was another filter used from day 9-27
it was a Fresenius CiCa Multifiltrate
This has been taken from the Lancet today:
On day 13—after the haemodynamic situation had already stabilised—we used a haemofiltration cartridge (Haemopurifier; Aethlon, San Diego, CA, USA) for 6·5 h upstream to the regular system. This cartridge is designed to bind viral glycoproteins by lectin affinity. This one-time use was well tolerated. PCR measurements taken directly before and after the use showed virus loads of 2·29 × 105 copies per mL and 7·66 × 104 copies per mL, respectively. This difference of less than a factor of 3 is within the technical variability range of the RNA PCR assay for Ebola virus and cannot be judged as a notable decrease.
Fresenius has agreed not to compete with the Company regarding the production or distribution of a competitive product in the Territory.
Between Fresinius and the Cytosorbents sales team it appears Europe will be locked up to outside competition for a few years.
If it could only be used on a new Ebola patient and direct some of that new Ebola funding our way.
In terms of Ebola, CytoSorbents is currently in five of seven major hospitals in Germany that are prepared to accept Ebola patients. We have communicated with these hospitals and providers in these hospitals and have made CytoSorb an option to potentially treat patients should they wind up being admitted to these hospitals. We have also had communications with the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, the FDA, the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease, [indiscernible] of the Department of Defense, treatment hospitals in the United States and others.
Sepsis led to severe illness when the viral load was already decreasing, which suggests that sepsis may contribute substantially to the mortality observed in the current outbreak of Ebola, specifically with regard to deaths occurring late after disease onset.
We sell directly to these other countries
CytoSorb® is sold directly in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, with expanding distribution in the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Netherlands, Turkey, India, Russia, Taiwan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Yemen, Iraq, Jordan and Oman, and now Romania and Moldova.

I think so
Conducted protocols then-
Future clinical trials will include a biological skin substitute to treat severe burns; an extracorporeal device to treat sepsis; a drug to treat muscle atrophy in burn patients; and the use of a mesh graft with spray on skin.
Yet Emerson did the same thing while using a Gambro HF 1400 filter, all of these patients were given multiple experimental treatments along with blood from survivors. At this point it is impossible to say if any one treatment will come out the winner.
Recent cures in Europe:
(Reuters) - A Cuban doctor who received experimental treatment for Ebola in a Geneva hospital has made a full recovery and left Switzerland to be reunited with his family, the hospital said on Saturday.
Felix Baez, 43, was one of 256 Cuban doctors and nurses who went to West Africa to treat patients from the worst outbreak of the virus on record, which has killed more than 6,000 people.
Soon after arriving in Geneva, Baez received the Canadian experimental treatment ZMab, a precursor to the Ebola drug ZMapp, which has been used to treat several U.S. patients.
"Two days afterwards he was already much better," Geneva's chief medical officer Jacques-André Romand told Reuters, adding that the same drug had been sent to Rome to treat an Italian doctor battling the virus.
A hospital spokeswoman said he received both ZMab and the untested flu drug favipiravir, made by Japan's Fujifilm, which the WHO has included on a list of potential Ebola treatments.
