The oxygen-carrying characteristics of Hemosol's blood substitute, Hemolink, are similar to those of fresh blood, according to the results of an in vitro study. The speed by which Hemolink retrieved and delivered oxygen was fast and appeared to coincide with the normal blood process, said Canadian researchers, who presented the findings at last week's American Society of Hematology meeting in Orlando, Florida. "This study is further confirmation of Hemolink's ability to retrieve oxygen in the lungs and immediately, efficiently and safely deliver it to the body's organs to treat acute anaemia," added Toronto-based Hemosol.
