H.E.L.P. apheresis in Long Covid

Hundreds of millions of people around the world are suffering from Covid-19, in Germany there are already many millions. More and more of these people suffer from various late effects (Long/Post Covid Syndrome), estimates assume 10-15% of all patients. The symptoms include exhaustion, constant tiredness (chronic fatigue syndrome), chronic headaches, severe concentration disorders, dyspnea, tachycardia and loss of smell.


H.E.L.P. apheresis has been available and established for over 30 years and is primarily used for patients with severe lipid metabolism disorders that are otherwise untreatable (e.g. hypercholesterolemia or hyperlipoproteinemia with cardiovascular complications).

As part of the treatment e.g. LDL, VLDL, Lp(a), inflammatory mediators, fibrinogen, pro-inflammatory adhesion molecules and other cytokines are removed. By removing these substances, including various inflammatory mediators, microcirculation and oxygen exchange in the organs are improved.


H.E.L.P. apheresis is generally very well tolerated and has few side effects. It is also compatible with anticoagulants and most medications.

The majority of patients get along well with the treatment and often notice significant improvement of symptoms right after the first session.


Initial data shows that H.E.L.P. apheresis both improves symptoms of Long/Post Covid Syndrome and can initiate or directly lead to recovery. In particular, the improvement of the microcirculation and the anti-inflammatory effects seem to play a decisive role.


The goal of our center in cooperation with Dr. Beate Jaeger in Mülheim an der Ruhr, apart from healing and improving quality of life, is to generate public acceptance and attention for Long Covid Syndrome. For this purpose, our doctors are in close contact with other centers that offer H.E.L.P. apheresis, as well as with Long/Post Covid special outpatient clinics and university hospitals.
