Poly(ethylene glycol)-Poly(lactic acid) block-copolymer (PEG-PLA) was prepared and characterized using Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometer (FTIR). Glutaraldehyde was used to crosslink stroma-free hemoglobin (SFHb), superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), and carbonic anhydrase (CA) into a soluble complex of PolySFHb-SOD-CAT-CA. PEG-PLA was then used to nanoencapsulated PolySFHb-SOD-CAT-CA by oil in water emulsification. This resulted in the formation of PLA-PEG-PolySFHb-SOD-CAT-CA nanocapsules that have enhanced antioxidant activity and that can transport both O(2) and CO(2). These are homogeneous particles with an average diameter of 100 nm with good dispersion and core shell structure, high entrapment efficiency (EE%), and nanocapsule percent recovery. A lethal hemorrhagic shock model in rats was used to evaluate the therapeutic effect of the PLA-PEG-PolySFHb-SOD-CAT-CA nanocapsules. Infusion of this preparation resulted in the lowering of the elevated tissue PCO(2) and also recovery of the mean arterial pressure (MAP).
