One of these has been approved for routine use in South Africa (Lok, 2001). Conjugated Hb (Fig. 1) In 1964, Chang showed that in the presence of both diamine and Hb, sebacyl chloride can crosslink hemolgobin to polymers to form insoluble conjugated Hb (Chang, 1964, 1965) (Fig. 2). This method has been extended to produce (intramolecular) soluble conjugated Hb (Fig. 1) formed by the linking of one Hb molecule to soluble polymers, as prepared by Sunder in 1975; Wong in 1976; Iwashita in 1980; and the Enzon group in 1988.

They are also known as nanoparticles, nanocapsules, polymersomes, nanotubules, etc. , 1965). They used these as a membrane model for basic membrane research. D. in biochemistry at McGill, he came to see me to discuss his future areas of research. I encouraged him to look into different ways of forming artificial cells for delivery of biologics. His subsequent research in England on the use of liposomes as drug delivery systems opened a whole new approach (Gregoriadis, 1976). , 1965) limits the amount of drugs or biologics that can be enclosed.

1. Introduction As discussed in the last chapter, nanobiotechnology is the assembling of biological molecules into one of the following categories: nanodimension structures, membranes with nanodimension thickness, and nanotubules with nanodimension diameter. The first nanobiotechnology approach reported in the literature is the crosslinking of Hb into ultrathin polyhemoglobin (PolyHb) membrane with nanodimension thickness for artificial cell membrane (Chang, 1964, 1965) (Fig. 2). If the emulsions are made very small, then the whole submicron artificial cells can be crosslinked into PolyHb of nanodimension.
