Business Identifier: Bio-synthetic hybrid red blood cells for trauma care related services
Public Profile:
In the Fall 2019, when a number of Washington University faculty with connections to the firm relocated to University of Maryland, Kalocyte moved operations to Baltimore MD. Kalocyte is working on development of a freeze-dried blood substitute - designated ErythroMer - that is reconstitutable and can be used in treatment of traumatic hemorrhage when banked blood is unavailable: in ambulances; military environments, developing world or when use of whole blood is undesirable e.g. during cardiac surgery and organ perfusion, ErythroMer red cell substitute is human hemoglobin encapsulated in a synthetic polymer shell designed precisely to emulate red blood cell oxygen binding/release. The shell does not require donor cross-matching. The nanoparticle has prolonged lyophilized stability at room temperature, is transportable in simple packaging, and is amenable to facile reconstitution with water for immediate field administration. With the prototype having passed rigorous initial proof of concept testing in rodent animal models of hemorrhage and hypoxemia, the product under furtherdevelopment will not require refrigeration and can be carried by soldiers and medics for prolonged field care.
