The company has developed a perfluorocarbon
(PFC) therapeutic oxygen carrier and liquid ventilation product (Oxycyte(TM)) and has out-licensed an implantable glucose sensor.
Oxycyte is a sterile, milky white, sub-micron (median diameter of 200-250 nm) perfluorocarbon
(PFC) emulsion intended for intravenous injection.
Oxycyte is an odorless, milky white emulsion consisting of a perfluorocarbon
, disodium, water, egg yolk phospholipids and a few other ingredients in very small amounts.
He then placed six of the animals on typical gas ventilators and six on ventilators that circulated perfluorocarbon
through the lungs.
The concept of utilizing our perfluorocarbon
emulsion as a way to bolster the delivery of oxygen to wounds from inside the body is new and fascinating.
The Company is also developing non-medical applications for its perfluorocarbon
MBA, chairman and chief executive officer of Sanguine, stated, "It is the function of our Scientific Advisory Board to investigate and develop non-medical applications for our perfluorocarbon
The two-day conference was attended by experts in perfluorocarbon
technology, environmental protection, fuel cell technology and other industries that could provide opportunities for PFCs.
SONUS Pharmaceuticals and SUNY/UB have been collaborating in the research and development of a blood substitute product for oxygen delivery based on SONUS' proprietary perfluorocarbon
The laboratory investigation suggests that administration of a perfluorocarbon
with the characteristics and performance of Oxycyte combined with 100% oxygen therapy can reverse tissue oxygen deficit and holds promise for reducing ischemic injury," said Bruce D.
Bulletin Board: SYBD) today announced results of independent animal testing that indicate a breakthrough in the development of its oxygen-carrying perfluorocarbon
(PFC) liquid ventilation product, Fluorovent(TM).
Van Liew's group points the way to exciting possibilities for therapeutic uses of our perfluorocarbon
microbubbles to deliver oxygen to tissues which need it, as in high-blood-loss surgical procedures, chronic anemia, and traumatic injury.
