Outline of the department

The hemodialysis unit is mainly concerned with the management of acute and 
chronic renal failure patients.  In addition to hemodialysis, other blood 
purification treatments, including hemofiltration, hemoperfusion, and plasma 
exchange, are being carried out.

Research is concerned with studies of the pharmacokinetics of drugs in 
patients undergoing hemodialysis and evaluation of the efficacy of new 
hemodialysis membranes.
