抜粋

This paper presents development of high water-permeable dialysis membranes. We proposed the system that does not use dialysis fluid for the implantable micro dialysis treatment and development of such membranes is crucial. We developed micro dialysis system composed by nanoporous membranes and microfluidic channels in our prior work. The membranes were made of nanoporous polyethersulfone (PES), which was not water-permeable. By not using dialysate, our device can be simplified because the pumps and storage tanks for the dialysis fluid are not necessary. This treatment is termed as hemofiltration. We measured the water permeability of PES membrane with respect to the concentrations of the PES, the additives, and the solvents in the casting solution. We could find the membranes with sufficiently high water permeability through in vitro experiments using a syringe pomp and whole cow blood, and the membrane had enough mechanical strength. We conducted experiments with multi-layered device in in vitro and in vivo using rats, where the system was connected to the vein and artery. We successfully collected the filtrate beyond target line, which was set by a medical doctor, without any leakage of blood from the device. The results verified that the filtration device can be scaled-up by increasing a number of the layer. We connected the device to a rat for 5h. It was verified the device maintained almost constant water permeability beyond our target line.
