Scientists coat hemoglobin with synthetic polymer

AABB SmartBrief | Dec 06, 2016

A group of researchers seeking to develop an artificial blood for use in transfusions have coated purified human hemoglobin proteins with a synthetic polymer that reacts to pH levels in the blood, according to a study being presented at the American Society of Hematology's annual meeting. "Blood pH is high in the lungs, is low in tissue, and is even lower in tissue that doesn't have enough oxygen. By linking oxygen affinity to blood pH, we imitate the behavior of a normal red cell," said researcher Dr. Allan Doctor of Washington University in St. Louis. HealthDay News (12/05)
