Hello to all the members:
Lifeblood Medical has just completed a small animal study on their solution "Lifor". It was tested for trauma and was successful for holding the small animal three hours on Lifor alone. After the three hours blood was transfused back into the animal and held for 24 hours.
Lifor is a synthetic oxygen carrier and contains no blood, animal, or human components. Next step is large animal studies. Possible use in surgery where one or two pints of Lifor could be used instead of blood. See the website lifebloodmedical.com - Home
