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

Georgia Southern University faculty member Sarah J.U. Higdon co-authored “Mapping of Nearby Galaxies in [CI] 370 μm and CO (7→6) 371 μm” in the publication Mapping the Galaxy and Nearby Galaxies appearing in the Astrophysics and Space Science Proceedings.
Chapter Summary: The fine structure line of [CI] at 370 μm, and the CO (7→6) rotational line at 371 μm are important coolants which can be used to probe the temperature and density of the warm gas component in regions of enhanced star formation. These lines can be used to provide key constrains on the physical properties of the warm molecular ... Read more
