Crocodile Blood May Yield Powerful New Drugs
 
The crocodile's immune system is much more powerful than that of humans, preventing life-threatening infections after savage territorial fights that often leave the animals with gaping wounds and missing limbs

nono Watch yourself, Heidi!! I'm a Gator, '81 tongue OK, we bite lol! (on the football field)

It's interesting Teri, just before I saw this I had just finished reading an article in National Geographic about snake venoms being investigated for use in drugs. Different venoms can cause almost instantaneous blood thinning or clotting.

It does make you wonder who thinks this stuff up!!

Maybe yu can find the link to this since diabetes and Heart disease are kissing cousins. Sounds promising my daughter-in-love is  an insulin dependent diabetic  54 units NPH in Am and then 18 reg in afternoon and 20 in evening and then 16 NPH before bedtime. Sounds very interersting what month was the article in.

I also read about the lizard spit this year. Even though the thought of lizard spit is not all that exciting, if it can help I guess I'm down for that. Grins. Kathy

Heidi, how about horse's urine? I know they use that for some type of medication because I saw it on Animal Planet. LOL. Oh, it has to be pregnant mare urine by the way.

The "lizard spit" treatment for diabetes is actually called Byetta. It's indication is for type 2 diabetes, and it is manufactured by Amylin Pharmaceuticals, in San Diego. It is a peptide therapeutic. I'm in this biz so I know about it :) Let me know if you need more info.

Teri, my boss and I actually had a conversation about the crocodile blood thing today! They are thinking about it for AIDS therapeutics. I didn't read the article link you posted, but he told me today it is really amazing that crocodiles get into such nasty fights with eachother, bloody and open wounds, and swim in swampy water, and manage to avoid suffering from blood borne disease. So there has got to be something special about their blood. How cool!
