Abstract: Extracorporeal immunoadsorption system has been used for the specific removal of immunologically active substances from the blood. In this study, an attempt is made to utilise polyacrylamide microspheres as a matrix for immunoadsorption. Phenyl alanine is coupled onto the polymer beads using glutaraldehyde. These modified beads exhibit a high binding affinity for gamma-globulin compared to bare beads. The surface modified ones showed selective adsorption of immunoglobulins of IgG class. The C-3 adsorption pattern is not altered significantly upon modification. Modified beads are found to be less hemolytic after modification. However, more studies are to be conducted for the development of a hemoperfusion column based on this modified matrix.
