Human Biomed's Artificial Organs
Human Biomed, Inc. is developing artificial kidney and/or artificial liver devices to provide high-efficiency blood purification treatment for patients , such as with kidney failure, acute-on-chronic liver failure, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), or septic shock.
Despite the enormous effort expended on the extracorporeal liver support, only a limited number of artificial liver devices are available clinically. Various adsorption stages are required with these devices to replace the detoxification function of liver, and this increases system complexity and treatment cost. As such, HBL offers a cost-effective, multi-functional liver dialysis treatment for patients with liver failure or systemic inflammation.
