Abstract

An in vitro study by using cross-linked agarose coated activated charcoal (CAAC-II) as adsorbent was conducted. Endotoxin was quantitatively measured by chromogenic method of limulus lysate test. Results of the study demonstrated that endotoxin was fairly efficiently removed by CAAC-II. It may therefore be possible for effective adsorption of endotoxin in vivo studies and warrant further experimental study for CAAC-II hemoperfusion in clinical endotoxemia.
