About HemoBioTech, Inc.
HemoBioTech is engaged in the development of HemoTech(TM), a novel human blood substitute technology exclusively licensed from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. HemoTech(TM) is a chemically modified hemoglobin which not only carries oxygen in the blood, but can also induce red blood cell production. The Company believes that HemoTech(TM) may possess properties that diminish the intrinsic toxicities which have plagued other attempts at developing blood substitutes, based upon pre-clinical and initial human clinical trials undertaken outside the U.S. by prior holders of this technology. HemoTech(TM) is being developed to help reduce or eliminate the danger resulting from acute blood loss in trauma, as well as for other applications. Corporate headquarters are located at J. P. Morgan International Plaza, 14221 Dallas Parkway, Suite 1500, Dallas, Texas 75254, and the Company telephone number is 214-540-8411. The Company website is www.hemobiotech.com.
