Alligator Blood May Lead to New Antibiotics

Alligators have a tough life swimming around in murky lagoons. They have fierce territorial battles that lead to lots of wounds and infections. Believe it or not, scientists are taking a close look at alligator blood and the proteins in the blood as potential treatments for a growing list of difficult to treat infections like MRSA. You see, alligators have adapted over millions of years and can fight off serious infection. Now, researchers from Louisiana suggest gator blood could produce a new source of powerful antibiotics that could fight infections associated with diabetic ulcers, burns, and even super-bugs.
