Joint 14th ISFA World Congress and 4th E-ISFA European Congress
This joint congress has been planned long time as the first joint in-person event but with virtual workshops.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to start our conference cooperation in 2021 on a virtual platform but with great success and more than 500 participants worldwide.
We are very proud and grateful to invite the Apheresis Community to Berlin, the German capital with its great cultural and political influence. COVID-19 has taught us the importance of having knowledge and experience in extracorporeal and specifically apheresis techniques. In addition to the nonselective approach of plasma exchange, the broader application of selective or even specific apheresis techniques allowing the removal of a wide range of disease-causing or disease-maintaining pathogens opens a growing field of clinically meaningful therapeutic approaches.
The concept of selectively eliminating pathogens rather than using pharmacological compounds remains attractive and provides a solid framework for more innovative therapies with only limited, especially long term, side effects.
The official congress language is English.
