Abstract

Hemodialysis and hemoperfusion are examples of extracorporeal therapy for the removal of endogenous or exogenous compounds from the blood plasma space. The processes involved in the extracorporeal therapy may be specific, such as hemoperfusion with affinity columns or with immobilized enzymes, or non-specific, such as the traditional hemodialysis techniques that employ a membrane to separate compounds based on molecular weight. This report shows how a new pharmocokinetic parameter, the bioefficacy, may serve as a convenient measure of the efficacy of extracorporeal therapy.
