When blood is not an option.
Trauma is the leading cause of death for young adults in both military and civilian populations. Over 30% of trauma patients die from hemorrhagic shock and 50% of these deaths occur during the pre-hospital period.
It’s about time. A hemoglobin-based oxygen carrier has been sought for time-critical trauma victims and pre-transplant donor organ support for decades.

The US Department of Defense has made an oxygen-carrying resuscitation solution a top priority to address field emergencies where a blood transfusion is simply not an option. VirTech Bio has been awarded $13.7M in non-dilutive funding. $10M of that from the US Army Medical Research and Development Command (USAMRDC), via the Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC), and an additional $1.7M from US Special Operations Command (SOCOM). This non-dilutive funding effectively leverages the $6.7M in equity funding thus far invested. The awarded funds cover most of the R&D, the cost of eGMP manufacture of OxyBridge™, and the planned Phase 1 clinical study. OxyBridge™ is the most advanced human-derived HBOC platform currently in development for hemorraghic shock and donor organ transplantation. The DoD investment has helped establish VirTech Bio as the leader in the field of hemoglobin oxygen carrier solutions.
