60th ERA Congress - Milan 

This year's ERA, the largest annual Nephrology Congress in Europe, takes place in Milan from June 15-18, 2023. 

Fresenius Medical Care will host an industry symposium about the hemocompatibility of dialyzers and how novel membranes may improve hemodialysis treatment. Membrane hemocompatibility plays a crucial role during chronic dialysis treatment so we take a look at the following aspects: 

  • Insights on blood membrane interaction and how hemocompatibility depends on membrane properties.

  • Role of complement system activation and inflammation during chronic hemodialysis treatment. 

  • Understanding how recent advances in dialyzer technology impact therapy outcomes.


Saturday, June 17th, 2023 13:30 – 14:30 live or virtual.
