Developing these for actual clinical use required parallel developments in molecular biology and biotechnology that were not yet available. More recently, many groups around the world have made exciting progress in biotechnology, molecular biology, genetic engineering and related areas. The outcome is a recent new wave of research and development in artificial cells. , 2003; Chang, 2005). Later chapters will describe some of these in more detail. This is now such a broad area that space will only allow for review of these areas with detailed examples based on research in my laboratory.

They are also free from infective agents such as HIV, hepatitis C, bacteria, parasites and so on. Furthermore, whereas donor blood has to be stored at 4◦ C and is only good for 42 days, PolyHb can be stored at room temperature for more than a year. Thus, PolyHb can have important uses in a number of clinical conditions notably for surgery.
