Oxygen transport by hemoglobin-based blood substitutes
A dual track approach has been applied to the study of oxygen transport behavior of erythrocyte/hemoglobin mixtures flowing in microvessels. The method includes experimental and theoretical modeling of the microcirculation. ...
Fabrication of pliable polymer scaffolds for tissue engineering and particulate effects on osteoblast function
Pliable, biodegradable scaffolds with poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) and poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) blends have been fabricated using a solvent-casting and particulate-leaching technique. This study investigated the ...
Biodegradable polymer scaffold fabrication and the creation of tissue-engineered bone
It is estimated that over one million surgeries to restore lost bone function are performed each year in the U.S. Although existing therapies generally result in adequate restoration of mechanical or aesthetic function, ...
Effect of hemoglobin polymerization on the oxygen transport in hemoglobin solutions and packed cells
The effect of hemoglobin polymerization on the facilitated transport of oxygen in systems containing polymerized hemoglobins has been studied experimentally. In part I of this work, the oxygen transport efficacy of a ...
