    Hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers

    Can anyone advise on how widely the HBOC Polyheme has been used, and how to determine whether it is based on bovine, human or other harvested red cells?

    Use the website search function!!!

    If you go to the top of the NoBlood homepage and type in 'polyheme' where it says search, and hit the go button, you'll find as much information about this product as you'll ever need to know. There was just a post 4 days ago that explains the issues surrounding polyheme. This resource is very helpful if you ever need information about a medical subject, particularly anything involved with blood management or conservation.
