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

During the Progressive Era (1880-1920), leading thinkers and politicians transformed American politics. Historians and political scientists have given a great deal of attention to the progressives who effected this transformation. Yet relatively little is known about the conservatives who opposed these progressive innovations, despite the fact that they played a major role in the debates and outcomes of this period of American history. These early conservatives represent a now-forgotten source of inspiration for modern American conservatism. This volume gives these constitutional conservatives their first full explanation and demonstrates their ongoing relevance to contemporary American conservatism.
