A modified technique for extracting a dislocated lens with perfluorocarbon
liquids and viscoelastics.
Since then various filling gas such as nitrogen, perfluorocarbons
, and sulfur hexafluoride has been used as microbubble which carried a particle size of 1-5 microns.
administration combined with mechanical ventilation in experimental respiratory distress syndrome: dose-dependent improvement of gas exchange.
Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory used colorless, nontoxic liquids called perfluorocarbon
tracers to essentially fingerprint carbon dioxide that was injected into a coal seam in northwestern New Mexico.
There were several attempts to create alternative blood substitutes based on perfluorocarbon
emulsions in order to avoid the intoxication by hemoglobin-containing blood substitutes (Geyer, 1973; Naito and Yokoyama, 1975; Riess, 1991; Shumakov et al., 1993).
The method involves the addition of perfluorocarbon
tracers (PFTs) to the injected C[O.sub.2] stream in a predetermined proportion depending on the injection rate at the injection wellhead with a small pump that is capable of matching the well's injection pressure.
(Durham, NC) has submitted a patent application for a new invention that uses Oxycyte perfluorocarbon
to deliver oxygen as a first aid treatment for victims of heart attacks and strokes.
The topics of their seven papers include the interaction of drug transporters with excipients, formulation issues around lipid-based oral and parenteral delivery systems, the biological implications of lipid-based parenteral delivery systems, principles in the development of intravenous lipid emulsions, the key factor of protein absorption patterns in determining the in vivo fate of parenteral lipid formulations; nanoparticple targeting for drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier, and lipid-coated perfluorocarbon
structures as parenteral therapeutic agents.
