Extreme cold is a dangerous situation that can bring on health emergencies in susceptible people.Tissue Preservation: The process by which a tissue or aggregate of cells is kept alive outside of the organism from which it was derived (i.e., kept from decay by means of a chemical agent, cooling, or a fluid substitute that mimics the natural state within the organism).Allopurinol: A XANTHINE OXIDASE inhibitor that decreases URIC ACID production. It also acts as an antimetabolite on some simpler organisms.Cryopreservation: Preservation of cells, tissues, organs, or embryos by freezing.
