Intravenous administration of certain immunoglobulin preparations may cause severe adverse reactions, especially in immunodeficient patients. These reactions are generally assumed to be related to the anticomplementary activity of the preparations, caused by IgG aggregates. Because the exact mechanism of the adverse reaction is unknown, we investigated the(More)
Modified hemoglobin solutions have potential application as plasma expanders with oxygen-transporting capacity. In a previous study it was found that modification of hemoglobin by intramolecular cross-linking with 2-nor-2-formylpyridoxal 5'-phosphate (NFPLP) improves the vascular retention time by a factor of three, and it also improves the(More)
Hemoglobin in stroma-free solution (7 gm/100 ml) was modified by covalently cross-linking the beta-chains with 2-nor-2-formylpyridoxal 5'-phosphate (NFPLP). The coupling efficiency was approximately 65%. The oxygen dissociation curve of the coupling mixture was shifted to the right, with a P50 of 30 mm Hg vs. 15 mm Hg for the nonmodified solution. The(More)
From these liver perfusions with Hb and Hb/HbNFPLP solutions the following conclusions can be drawn: In spite of the chemical modification of the hemoglobin molecule, no rheological differences are seen. All parameters measured were sensitive to hypoxia induced by a decrease in perfusion flow rate. The NFPLP-induced decrease in oxygen affinity was reflected(More)
The influence of a 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG)-induced displacement of the oxygen dissociation curve (O.D.C.) on the isolated perfused rat liver was studied at different levels of anaemic hypoxia. Rat livers were perfused either with fresh or with 2,3-DPG-depleted human erythrocytes at different haematocrit values (from 30% to 2.5%) at constant Po2 of(More)
Stroma-free hemoglobin (Hb) solutions were prepared on a 20-I scale. In 3-I batches, the beta chains of hemoglobin were crosslinked with 2-nor-2-formylpyridoxal 5'-phosphate (NFPLP) that was synthesized on a gram scale. The coupling efficiency was 60 to 80 percent. The oxygen dissociation curve of these Hb/HbNFPLP mixtures was shifted to the right with P50(More)
OBJECTIVE In our laboratory, we have developed an immunorosette technique for the depletion of T cells from bone marrow transplants. Tetrameric complexes of monoclonal antibodies are able to form very stable immunorosettes, which are efficiently depleted with the aid of a blood cell separator. Major improvements over the original sheep red blood cell(More)
BACKGROUND The freezing curve currently used for the cryopreservation of peripheral blood stem cell transplants (PBSCTs) has been determined empirically. Although the use of cryopreserved PBSCTs is successful and usually leads to rapid hematopoietic recovery, the freeze-thawing process is known to induce a significant degree of cell death. Furthermore, the(More)
Human stroma-free hemoglobin (Hb) was crosslinked with 2-nor-2-formylpyridoxal 5'-phosphate (NFPLP), purified over crosslinked dextran, and eluted with a linear salt gradient. The oxygen dissociation curve of this crosslinked hemoglobin appeared to be shifted to the right with a standard P50 of 49 torr (PO2 for 50% saturation with oxygen at a pH of 7.40, a(More)
