Biopure gives new meaning to blood work. The company makes an artificial blood product based on bovine red blood cells to deliver oxygen to patients with acute blood loss, anemia, or who have had a stroke or a heart attack. Its Hemopure, for humans, and Oxyglobin, for dogs (already approved for veterinary use), are made of purified and processed cow blood, have a two-year shelf life, do not require blood typing, and release more oxygen than a blood transfusion. The blood products also are less viscous than red blood cells, allowing them to flow more easily through partially blocked or constricted blood vessels. Chairman and CEO Carl Rausch owns about 44% of the company.
