Public health assessment: Perfluorochemical
contamination in Lake Elmo and Oakdale, Washington.
liquid ventilation: from the animal laboratory to the intensive care unit.
Even though she was no longer a state employee, Oliaei, the Rachel Carson of the Upper Mississippi, completed a hefty report for the Minnesota Senate's Environment Committee titled "Investigation of Perfluorochemical
(PFC) Contamination in Minnesota, Phase One.

Test Results, ENVTL.
The pancreases were preserved for no more than 8 hours by a two-layer method in which the pancreas is placed between a lower layer containing perfluorochemical
and an upper layer containing the University of Wisconsin (UW) organ preservation solution.
Oxygent (perflubron emulsion) is a patent-protected, stable, and concentrated perfluorochemical
(PFC)-based synthetic oxygen therapeutic developed by Alliance, which has been evaluated in late-stage clinical studies for avoidance of red blood cell transfusions during surgery.
The powder is reconstituted with water to form an osmotically stabilized suspension of microscopic spheres, or "microspheres", containing a perfluorochemical
(perflexane) vapor and physiologic gases.
Oxygent is a sterile perfluorochemical
emulsion that does not contain human or animal blood components.

emulsion, Fluosol-DA [Letter].
contamination in Lake Elmo and Oakdale, Washington County, Minnesota: Public health assessment.
Alliance, through its wholly owned subsidiary, PFC Therapeutics, is developing a synthetic therapeutic oxygen carrier, Oxygent, as a temporary red blood cell substitute, based on its proprietary perfluorochemical
and surfactant technologies.
of San Diego, for example, is undertaking development of perfluorochemical
substitutes with affiliates of Johnson & Johnson.
