SAN DIEGO, March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Sangart, Inc., a privately held biopharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and commercialization of oxygen therapeutics, today announced the receipt of approximately $50 million in funding from existing investors. This investment results from the exercise of warrants issued by Sangart as part of a Series F financing round initiated in 2007. The most recent investment brings the total funding under the Series F round to approximately $100 million. Proceeds from this warrant exercise will be used to fund further clinical development of Sangart's MP4 oxygen therapeutic products.

About MP4 Oxygen Therapeutics

The MP4 molecule is the basis for Sangart's oxygen therapeutic product platform. The MP4 molecule is created using unique polyethylene glycol conjugation with human hemoglobin and was specifically designed to the optimal molecular size, viscosity, oxygen affinity and diffusion potential to target oxygen delivery to tissues at risk of oxygen deprivation based on experiments with artificial capillaries and in several different animal models. Extensive research and testing demonstrates that this approach optimizes oxygen delivery while minimizing the side effects that plagued earlier generation products.
