Helping people take a more nurturing approach to the immune system in GvHD

THERAKOS ECP Immunomodulation™ enables you to nurture the patient’s immune system[6-8] in GvHD to achieve high response without suppressing immune function. [9-12] Watch our new video to discover the benefits of our distinct approach to treat GvHD.
