Radiographic contrast media capture material
Publication date: 2008
The present invention relates to materials, coatings, apparatus, and methods for removing radiocontrast agent from a patient. In accordance with one aspect of the invention, molecular imprinting technologies are utilized to create a safe, predictable and reliable medium for removal of nephrotoxic contrast agent from body fluids of a patient, such as the bloodstream. In accordance with certain aspects of the present invention, the contrast agent can be removed without mechanical filtering or any other mechanically damaging technique affecting the blood matrix. The molecularly imprinted medium (MIM) can be used to extract the contrast agent from the blood either intra- or extracorporeally.
