Ch02 FA April 2, 2007 12:8 SPI-B446 Artificial Cells: Biotechnology, Nanotechnology, Blood Substitutes, Regenerative... 2. 15 Nanotechnology and Nanobiotechnology There is much recent interest in nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is a large and complex area that embraces many diverse approaches. One of these is to make the original artificial cells smaller using the same basic principles and method. This includes biodegradable nanoparticles, nanospheres and nanocapsules. Examples include nano artificial red blood cells with lipid membrane (Djordjevich and Miller, 1980) or biodegradable polymeric membranes nano artificial red blood cells (WP Yu and Chang, 1994) (Fig.

The result was hemoperfusion based on artificial cells, being carried out routinely around the world for the treatment of suicidal and accidental uses of medications in adult and pediatric patients. In the meantime, I was completing an invited monograph for Charles C. Thomas Publisher and it contained a detailed description of methods. On becoming a tenured full professor in 1972, I immediately had this published (Chang 1972a). The advantage of having “tenure” is that it enabled me to safely use the title “Artificial cells” instead of “Semipermeable microcapsules” for this monograph!

If the emulsions are made very small, then the whole submicron artificial cells can be crosslinked into PolyHb of nanodimension. Glutaraldehyde can crosslink Hb into soluble PolyHb of nanodimension (Chang, 1971b) (Fig. 2). , 2002). Oxygen carriers developed by one group are in routine clinical use in South Africa (Lok, 2001). There are also other types of Hb-based oxygen carriers that are not based on nanobiotechnology. This chapter discusses why nanobiotechnology has been used and how Hb-based oxygen carriers prepared using this approach compare with other types of Hb-based oxygen carriers.
