A hemofiltration system for a mammal is provided with a hemofilter and an adsorbent device. The hemofilter removes ultrafiltrate from a blood stream extracted from the mammal to create a filtered blood stream and an ultrafiltrate stream. The adsorbent device has one or more adsorbent materials and is used to adsorb inflammatory mediators from the ultrafiltrate stream received from the hemofilter removing inflammatory mediators that cause inflammatory mediator related disease, sepsis, and SIRS/MODS/MOSF to create a post adsorption ultrafiltrate stream. The post adsorption ultrafiltrate stream is selectively combined with the filtered blood stream and together with the filtered blood stream is returned to the mammal.
