Abstract

Dialysis-related amyloidosis (DRA) is a common complication associated with long-term haemodialysis therapy. The elimination of beta2-microglobulin (beta 2m), the major constituent of the amyloid fibrils in DRA, from circulation has been expected to bring some clinical benefit. Recently, a direct haemoperfusion method using selective beta 2m absorption column to eliminatecirculating beta 2m has been introduced into clinical practice. According to a recently performed, prospective, multicentre study, joint pain, stiffness and daily activities were significantly improved in patients with established DRA after the introduction of selective beta 2m absorption therapy. Meanwhile, although osteoarticular lesions progressed in the control group,there was no significant progression in the selective beta 2m absorption therapy group. The absorptive affinity of the column for beta 2m is not quite specific and therefore some other unknown uraemic toxins might be removedalso. However, the improvement of joint pain and the ability to undertake daily activities showed reversed correlations against plasma beta 2m clearance. Symptoms associated with the increased amount of extracorporeal circulation and increased economical burden are areas of concern for this therapy. In conclusion, selective beta 2m absorption therapy was suggested to havethe potential to ameliorate established DRA symptoms and simultaneously prevent its local development. The mechanism by which DRA symptoms are ameliorated remains obscure.
