  • Phospholipid vesicles encapsulating purified hemoglobin (HbV) were developed to provide O2-carrying capacity to plasma expanders. Microvascular perfusion was determined for HbV with different O2 affinity (P50 = 9, 16, and 30 mmHg) prepared by coencapsulating pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (PLP) at the molar ratios of [PLP]/[Hb] = 0, 0.5, and 3, respectively (cf. hamster blood, P50: 28 mmHg), and suspended in 8 g/dl human serum albumin (HSA). Eighty percent of the red blood cell (RBC) mass of conscious… CONTINUE READING
