PMID:  7994387     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Bovine hemoglobin has many advantages as a blood substitute: a) it's ready availability; b) it's low cost; c) it's oxygen carrying capacity; and d) the ease with which it can be modified with polyethylene glycol (PEG) to improve its pharmacokinetic profile. This study investigates the potential of PEG-modified bovine hemoglobin as a cost-effective blood substitute.
