Perfluorocarbon compounds have been utilized either in pure (neat) form or as emulsions suspended in aqueous fluids. These man-made chemicals possess a unique physical property allowing them to dissolve much more respiratory gases than any water-based system. Understanding the basic physical chemistry surrounding these emerging medical technologies will assure they are utilized to maximum benefit for mankind. It is clear they should not simply be viewed as 'blood substitutes' but rather as…

Injectable oxygenation therapeutics: evaluating the oxygen delivery efficacy of artificial oxygen carriers and kosmotropes in vitro

Results of this study showed that 0.5 ml of a PFC outperformed 6.25 ML of a kosmotrope in a controlled, in vitro setting and that PTB and sucrose do not contribute to the overall oxygen transportation efficacy of DDFPe, which could be therapeutically beneficial to ongoing and future pre-clinical and clinical studies involving various oxygenation agents.

In vitro model to compare the oxygen offloading behaviour of dodecafluoropentane emulsion (DDFPe)

Results of this study showed that oxygen offloading is inversely related to the solubility of the selected sparging gas in saline and both pre-oxygenated and simultaneously oxygenated DDFPe display similar magnitudes of oxygen transport.

The use of PFC in addition to the carbon dioxide flushing technique reduces the volume of gas released during deployment of tubular thoracic stent-grafts to a few microliters and could be a potential future approach to lower the risk of cerebral injury and stroke from air embolism during TEVAR.

A 3D Cell Culture Organ-on-a-Chip Platform With a Breathable Hemoglobin Analogue Augments and Extends Primary Human Hepatocyte Functions in vitro

A throughput-scalable organ-on-a-chip insert system that requires a single tube to operate 48 statistically independent 3D cell culture organ models is presented and improved oxygenation shifts cellular metabolic pathways toward oxidative phosphorylation that contributes to the maintenance of differentiated liver phenotypes in vitro.

Control of Plasma Nitric Oxide Bioactivity by Perfluorocarbons: Physiological Mechanisms and Clinical Implications

The present study reveals a physiologically significant pool of endogenous plasma NO and underscores the crucial role of the circulating hydrophobic phase in modulating its bioactivity, establishing PFC as a conceptually new pharmacological tool for various cardiovascular complications associated with NO imbalance.

Predictions of capillary oxygen transport in the presence of fluorocarbon additives.

A mathematical model of capillary oxygen transport was formulated to determine the effect of increasing plasma solubility, e.g., by the addition of an intravascular fluorocarbon emulsion, and the intracapillary mass transfer coefficient was found to increase.
