To determine the safety and effectiveness of pyridoxylated hemoglobin polyoxyethylene conjugate (PHP) administered by continuous intravenous (IV) infusion in systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) patients with shock. PHP is a human-derived chemically modified hemoglobin preparation. PHP selectively scavenges excess nitric oxide (NO) and does so in a catalytic, concentration-dependent reaction that results in the formation of the non-toxic NO metabolite, nitrate. PHP is postulated to reduce excess, toxic levels of NO while allowing critical beneficial levels of the molecule to persist.
This Phase 3, randomized, placebo controlled, multi-center study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of continuous IV infusion of PHP plus conventional vasopressor treatment, as compared to continuous IV infusion of Plasma-Lyte A plus conventional vasopressor, as a treatment for restoring hemodynamic stability in SIRS patients with shock. Conventional vasopressors include dopamine > 5 mcg/kg/min; or norepinephrine, phenylephrine or epinephrine at any dose.
The study consists of a Screening period, a Pre-Treatment period, and a 28-day Treatment period. Efficacy will be determined by evaluating objective clinical measures of mortality and organ function over the 28-day treatment period.
The safety and tolerability of PHP will be evaluated over the continuous 28 days using a number of measures including an evaluation of:
- all cause mortality,
- median patient survival time and
- adverse event rates and duration.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is a leading cause of maternal mortality and morbidity, and is most commonly caused by poor uterine tone after delivery of the baby and placenta. Currently, a l...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety, tolerability and immunogenicity of a 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (13vPnC), relative to a 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate va...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the immune responses of UK infants after one or two doses of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine or one or two doses of three different types of meningoc...
Septic shock is a common syndrome caused by the body's response to an infection. Septic shock is responsible for 10% of all ICU admissions and 30% of ICU deaths. Use of "beta blocker" medi...
Aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of paracetamol administration on the microcirculation, on the plasmatic levels of free hemoglobin and on the oxidative stress of septic patient ...
Noninvasive measurements of hemoglobin in the pediatric perioperative setting could be helpful to avoid venipunctures in children. The present study aims to evaluate this by using a noninvasive device...
Because total hemoglobin in circulation ([THb]) is an established predictor of clinical outcomes in anemic individuals, the relative efficacies of resuscitation fluids to increase [THb] can be used to...
Hemoglobin SC is the second most common variant of sickle-cell disease worldwide, after hemoglobin SS. The objectives of the study were to describe the clinical and laboratory characteristics of hemog...
Recently, nanoparticles have attracted much attention as new scaffolds for hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers (HBOCs). Indeed, the development of bionanotechnology paves the way for the rational design ...
In the presence of CoA, cell-free extracts prepared from porcine liver was found to convert 7,8-dihydroxyflavone (DHF) to a pantetheine conjugate, which was a novel flavonoid. We purified a 7,8-DHF-co...
The major component of hemoglobin in the fetus. This HEMOGLOBIN has two alpha and two gamma polypeptide subunits in comparison to normal adult hemoglobin, which has two alpha and two beta polypeptide subunits. Fetal hemoglobin concentrations can be elevated (usually above 0.5%) in children and adults affected by LEUKEMIA and several types of ANEMIA.
A family of heat-shock proteins that contain a 70 amino-acid consensus sequence known as the J domain. The J domain of HSP40 heat shock proteins interacts with HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS. HSP40 heat-shock proteins play a role in regulating the ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATASES activity of HSP70 heat-shock proteins.
An adult hemoglobin component normally present in hemolysates from human erythrocytes in concentrations of about 3%. The hemoglobin is composed of two alpha chains and two delta chains. The percentage of HbA2 varies in some hematologic disorders, but is about double in beta-thalassemia.
The presence of free HEMOGLOBIN in the URINE, indicating hemolysis of ERYTHROCYTES within the vascular system. After saturating the hemoglobin-binding proteins (HAPTOGLOBINS), free hemoglobin begins to appear in the urine.
One of the sickle cell disorders characterized by the presence of both hemoglobin S and hemoglobin C. It is similar to, but less severe than sickle cell anemia.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
