 In review, application of immunoadsorption for therapy of autoimmune diseases is elucidated. It was focused on the most widespread autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis and other. Current knowledge concerning pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases was also covered. Treatment of these diseases due to coplexity of the underlying mechanisms requires new approaches besides using traditional therapy. Growing evidence suggests that such approaches may include immunoadsorption. It was demonstrated that immunoadsorption may be applied as main or additive method in combined therapy of autoimmune diseases due to its high efficacy and safety.

 Key words: immunoadsorbtion, immunosorbent, autoimmune diseases.
