This quantity first offers proof for the earthworm's immune procedure; the consequences strongly recommend that convinced molecules of the earthworm's immune method can be exploited as ordinary antibiotics - therefore the biomedical purposes. Earthworms have a powerful immune process due to the fact that melanoma can't be precipitated in them, nor does it appear to take place in common populations. Cytoxicity of melanoma cells has been tested relating to earthworm leukocytes dependent upon: constitution; phone differentiation antigens; and serve as published via FACS and mAbs.
