Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Therapeutic Plasma Exchange as an Adjunctive Strategy to Treat Coagulopathy and Inflammation in Severe Covid-19
Official Title  ICMJE Randomized, Prospective, Open-label, Controlled Parallel-group Trial Investigating the Efficacy of Therapeutic Plasma Exchange as an Adjunctive Strategy to Treat the Systemic Inflammatory Response Against SARS-CoV2 and the Associated Coagulopathy
Brief Summary

Randomized controlled trial to analyse adjuvant therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) in severe Covid-19 associated coagulopathy and systemic inflammation compared to current standard of care (SOC).

A total of three TPEs (d1, 3, 5) will be performed in the intervention group. Primary endpoint is the reversibility of relative ADAMTS13 deficiency (indicated by the change in ADAMTS13 / VWF:Ag ratio from day 1 to 7).
