Among the approaches showing early clinical promise are plasmapheresis, intravenous immunoglobulin infusions, nonpharmacologic immune modulation therapy aimed at harnessing cell apoptosis to decrease chronic inflammation, extracorporeal immunoabsorption of cardiac autoantibodies, and statin therapy.

Before IgM and IgA were determined by IFA, antibodies of class IgG were removed from the patient's serum by antihuman IgG by using two immunoabsorption kits: EUROSORB (EUROIMMUN) for commercial IFA and GULLSORB (Meridian Bioscience Inc.

22) have demonstrated that although tTG immunoabsorption is enough to abrogate anti-tTG EIA reactivity, it failed to completely abolish EMA binding activity.
Pure CA I and CA II IgGs were prepared by an immunoabsorption method in which purified human CA I and CA II antigens (Sigma Aldrich) were attached to N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS)-activated columns (HiTrap NHS-activated column; no.
This is also supported by the observation that the immunoabsorption of IgA-class autoantibodies against TGc by guinea pig TGc cannot completely abrogate antiendomysium activity (28), although these experiments should be repeated using calcium-activated human TGc because not all patients' antibodies may cross-react with the guinea pig antigen.
