ESRD Inflammation & Endotoxemia
According to the United States Renal Data System (USRDS), more than 550,000 individuals suffer from end-stage renal disease (ESRD), which results in approximately 85 million kidney dialysis treatments being administered in the United States each year. Persistent inflammation is a hallmark feature of ESRD as reflected by the excess production of inflammatory cytokines, including tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and interleukin-6 (IL-6), which contribute to increased mortality. ESRD inflammation also induces intestinal permeability, which allows endotoxin (gram-negative bacterial toxin) to translocate from the gut and into the bloodstream. Beyond fueling further inflammation, endotoxin is potent activator of sepsis, which can lead to multiple organ failure and death.
Sigyn Therapy establishes a candidate strategy to improve the health and quality-of-life of ESRD patients. Beyond its proven ability to deplete endotoxin, TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6 from human blood plasma, Sigyn Therapy can be administered in series with regularly scheduled dialysis therapy.
