Oxycyte

We are continuing development of Oxycyte through a collaborative agreement with Aurum Biosciences, Ltd.  Our Oxycyte oxygen carrier product is a PFC-based oil in water emulsion, which is provided to the patient intravenously. The physical-chemical properties of PFCs enable our product to concentrate oxygen from the lungs and transport it through the body releasing it along the way. Over a period of days Oxycyte is gradually exhaled through the lungs during the normal process of respiration. Oxycyte requires no cross matching, so it is immediately available and compatible with all patients’ blood types. Oxycyte is provided as a sterile emulsion ready for intravenous administration. Because it contains no biological components, there is reduced risk of transmission of blood-borne viruses from human blood products.
