STORY

The apheresis or aphàiresis, Greek word whose literal meaning is “subtraction”, is now regarded as a refined form of ancient bloodletting.

The therapeutic apheresis has its origins in the Middle Ages, a time when bloodletting was employed in various situations with the intent to obtain, through this therapy, the removal of “bad moods” and was widely used until the nineteenth century to treat a wide variety of pathological conditions.

In 1914, Abel, along with Rowentree and Turner, introduced the term “plasmapheresis” whose literal meaning is “subtraction”.The first “therapeutic plasmapheresis” was performed in 1952 in a patient with multiple myeloma; in 1963, patients with paraproteinemia were treated with plasmapheresis to reduce blood hyperviscosity, as described by Salomon and Fahey. During the course of time, more specific and selective techniques were gradually introduced, allowing the use of the treatment for new clinical indications ( plasma exchange, CRYO apheresis, leukapheresis, thrombocytopheresis, lymphocyte apheresis, LDL apheresis).
