Seraph 100 binds SARS-CoV-2. Clinicians reported that during and after treatment, inflammatory markers (such as IL-6, d-dimer, and ferritin) were reduced, as well as blood pressure stabilization and a reduced demand for vasopressors.
Seraph 100 has a wide range of applications and can safely reduce drug-susceptible and drug-resistant pathogens in the blood. Secondary bacterial or fungal infections from other sources are known complications of COVID-19.
Yes, multiple publications have confirmed the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in the blood. Virus in the blood correlates with disease severity.
