Since around 1985, a liposome encapsulated hemoglobin vesicle (HbV) has been developed in Waseda University as an artificial red cell. Subsequently, in 1995, Terumo Co. produced a prototype of HbV for clinical trial, the so–called Neo Red Cell. We tested this in preclinical study and believed...
A primary mechanism for the hemoglobin (Hb) mediated vascular contraction is believed to be Hb scavenging of endothelial nitric oxide (NO). In the isolated rat thoracic aorta, however, the Hb mediated contraction occurs only after an agonist-induced precontraction. Why? To investigate the...
We have proposed new criteria for a successful cell-free, hemoglobin-based O 2 carrier. These include increased molecular radius, increased viscosity, increased oncotic pressure, and reduced p50. A new molecule, MalPEG-Hb, formulated at 4.2 g/dL in lactated Ringer's solution (MP4), has been...
Perfluorocarbons (PFC), which store and release high levels of oxygen, have been examined as oxygen carriers. PFC was first used in organ preservation as a component of the two-layer method (TLM). The TLM is comprised of University of Wisconsin solution (UW) and oxygenated PFC for pancreas...
The method to determine the average molecular weight and distribution of molecular weight of the PEGylated hemoglobin (PEG-bHb) and their molecular weight of polypeptides in PEG-bHb with UV absorbance (UV), light scattering (LS) and refractive index (RI) detectors is described in this paper. The...
Clinical experience of Perftoran (commercial drug of low concentrated perfluorocheminal emulsion) applications is presented in some statistical data and in brief analysis of clinical trials and following clinical studies described in the Russian scientific literature. Observed data allow us to...
The unique behavior of perfluorocarbons (PFCs), including their high oxygen dissolving capacity, hydrophobic and lipophobic character, and extreme inertness, derive directly, in a predictable manner, from the electronic structure and spatial requirements of the fluorine atom. Their low water...
