HBOC-201 improves survival in a swine model of hemorrhagic shock and liver injury.

This experimental study highlights the potential beneficial therapeutic effect of a hemoglobin-based oxygen carrier (HBOC) used as a resuscitation fluid during severe traumatic shock. In contrast to colloid (high molecular weight hydroxyethyl starch) based resuscitation, a similar volume of HBOC from bovine origin prevented exsanguination cardiac arrest, allowing for significantly higher long term (96 hr) […]
