Stop The Bleeding: Avoiding Blood Vessel Leakage During Trauma
When blood vessels become weak or are put under trauma, they become porous and blood cells leak out – flooding surrounding tissue and putting a person’s life in jeopardy. Faculty at the University of Toledo have developed a new liquid compound polyethylene glycol (PEG) – modified albumin. Dr. Joseph Shapiro, Dr. Regheb Assaly, and Dr. J. David Dignam developed this medical breakthrough and are licensing its use through ADS Biotechnology. Dr. Jeffrey Gold, provost, UT College of Medicine, talks about the process taking a drug from lab to the pharmacy shelf.
