Problem: Currently available resuscitation fluids have been shown to induce detrimental effects on trauma outcomes.Objective: The objective of this proposal is to use the data from the successful Phase 1 studies to guide the continued development and testing of the novel resuscitation fluid (GND-001), which has been designed to address the deficiencies of current resuscitation fluids.Proposed work and expected results:The proposed work will involve refining the GND 001 formulation based on data from the Phase I proof-of-concept studies and in vitro testing using an endothelial cell model.The refinements to GND-001 will be tested for efficacy in a small animal hemorrhagic shock model compared to a) the original prototype as a benchmark, and b) the standard-of-care control.We will also examine the effects of the resuscitation fluid in a large animal hemorrhagic shock model.The swine model is well defined and the size of the animal allows for a longer study period, additional studies such as coagulation assays, and more frequent assay intervals that are not possible in the rodent model due to volume restrictions.Based on the phase I results, we expect the results to show improvements in acidosis and base deficit, and improvements in outcome.
