This quantity first offers proof for the earthworm's immune procedure; the implications strongly recommend that yes molecules of the earthworm's immune procedure might be exploited as common antibiotics - hence the biomedical purposes. Earthworms have a powerful immune approach due to the fact melanoma can't be precipitated in them, nor does it appear to ensue in common populations. Cytoxicity of melanoma cells has been tested with regards to earthworm leukocytes dependent upon: constitution; mobilephone differentiation antigens; and serve as printed through FACS and mAbs.

As such they are of interest in the earthworm immune response capacities. Three serine proteases have been isolated from coelomocyte lysates of E. foetida andrei, one of which was a trypsin-type (Table 4)[10, 51]. Serine protease activity has been reported in Lumbricus terrestris [52, 53]. According to interactions observed principally in insects, extracellular serine protease inhibitors regulate intracellular proteolytic enzymes [54]. Purified to homogeneity by affinity chromatography on trypsin, the serine protease inhibitor from E.

Because fibrinolytic activities increased, these results suggest that earthworm powder represents a possible oral thrombolytic agent. This earthworm enzyme may be applicable for treating patients with thalassemia.
