Georgia Southern University faculty member Li Ma authored “Polynitroxylated Hemoglobin as a Multifunctional Therapeutic for Critical Care and Transfusion Medicine” in the publication Selected Topics in Nanomedicine.
Chapter Summary: Polynitroxylation (PN) technology is a chemical modification process, which covalently links multiple nitroxides to various macromolecules, including hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers (HBOCs). Like free nitroxides, PN products possess superoxide dismutase mimetic activity. In addition, when redox coupled with heme centers, polynitroxylated hemoglobins have catalase and peroxidase mimetic activities. PN of HBOCs allows the therapeutic benefits of nitroxides to be target delivered intravascularly. More significantly, it corrects the intrinsic toxicity of HBOCs and ... Read more
