Acute intoxications

Bruxelles Woluwe

The acute medicine thematic is interested in the treatment of poisoning. It evaluates innovative treatments for rare intoxications threatening the patient's life.

In this regard, we have tested an albumin dialysis technique to extract cardio-toxic drugs, binding to blood proteins, from the bloodstream.

Our research also focuses on the genetic polymorphism of cytochromes and their influence on the metabolism of drugs in case of intoxication.
