The future of medicine could be swimming in the deep blue sea.
Scientists have discovered that when dolphins are bitten by sharks, their wounds don't bleed or cause them pain. And even better, they heal in a matter of weeks. So, how does this apply to humans? The answer lies in the regenerative stem cells and special proteins, which humans could make into antibiotics or pain-relievers.
Researcher Michael Zasloff from Georgetown University compiled much of this information in a letter to the "Journal of Investigative Dermatology."
