ViE filter


Asahi Kasei Kuraray Medical has developed the ViE dialyzer containing a unique vitamin E-interactive polysulfone membrane, VitabranE.

Many ESRD patients treated by hemodialysis are reported to suffer from oxidative stress due to elevated levels of free radicals such as reactive oxygen species.

Vitamin E is known to be an excellent antioxidant capable of inhibiting damage caused by such free radicals through donating electrons in an oxidation- reduction reaction.The Vitamin E present in VitabranE retains these excellent antioxidative properties.
