Welcome

Dear colleagues,

Due to the ongoing global pandemic and the uncertainty of future situations we decided to switch from a face-to-face meeting to an online event.

We shortened and adapted the programme. Of course, COVID-19 is dedicated a session. This disease presented us with some challenges. But here, too, there are interesting therapeutic approaches in plasma therapy.

But also other novel therapy options such as CRP apheresis, extracorporeal photopheresis in solid organ-transplantation, and new approaches for managing acquired TTP will be discussed.

The choice of topics is up to date and reflects the rapid scientific development in extracorporeal therapy. Join our Webinar, we are sure that our event, despite all the adversities and uncertainties of the time, will be a success.
