Biotechnology of plasma proteins

''Discussing the function of plasma proteins in present biotechnology, this e-book describes the protein composition of human plasma, the fractionation of plasma to acquire healing proteins, and the research of those items. It delineates the trail from plasma items to recombinant items, and highlights items from albumin, intravenous immunoglobins, and coagulation.

Managing Sickle Cell Disease in Low-Income Families

As many as 30,000 African american citizens have sickle phone disorder (SCD). notwithstanding the political activism of the Nineteen Sixties and an enormous Seventies future health crusade spurred calls for for trying out, remedy, and teaching programs, little cognizance has been given to how households do something about SCD. this primary learn to provide SCD a social, monetary, and cultural context records the day-by-day lives of households residing with this threatening affliction.

Without stem cells, the implanted hepatocytes in artificial cells can only be maintained at the low level for one month. What is even more exciting is our recent finding using artificial cells containing only bone marrow stem cells and no hepatocytes. The control group of rats with 90% of their liver surgically removed did not survive. Unlike free stem cells, an intraperitoneal injection of artificial cells containing bone marrow stem cells alone results in long-term survival (Liu and Chang, 2006).

In Lesch-Nyhan disease, enzyme defect resulted in the elavation of hypoxanthine to toxic levels. , 1989). Phenylketonuria is a more common congenital enzyme defect. Artificial cells containing phenylalanine ammonia lyase, given by mouth, lower the systemic phenylalanine levels in phenylketonuria [PKU] in rats (Bourget and Chang, 1986). , 2002). Multienzyme systems with cofactor recycling Most enzymes in the body function as multienzyme systems with cofactor recycling. After basic research on artificial cells containing multienzyme systems (Chang, 1985a), we looked into their possible use.
