Perfluorochemical oxygen carriers: potential uses in neurosciences.


In this article we review recent developments in the field of "first-" and "second-generation" perfluorochemical (PFC) oxygen carriers. Particular emphasis is placed on the latest research and its implications regarding the clinical and experimental neurosciences. These compounds are ideally suited to the transportation of O2 within the vascular system. Two… (More)
