Researchers in Australia have discovered that some species
shellfish can help a person get rid of viral warts and
herpes infection. Snails that live near the coast
Tasmania is not only considered an exotic gastronomic
delicacy, but also have a powerful antiviral effect.
Gastropods from the subclass Vetigastropoda inhabit the

however, there are also deepwater ones, they feed on algae, detritus.
It is these snails that contain protein that can inhibit the virus.

From the history: the alchemists of the Middle Ages believed that if the sink

Today, new interesting properties of these marine
dwellers. Antiviral property “abalone” was found
When scientists (literally a few years ago) worked on
producing cancer serum and conducting clinical trials
this remedy from mollusk, in patients who participated in
a new drug experiment, a decrease in titers was found
antibodies to herpes simplex virus.
At the same time one of the employees of the laboratory, which is a month
worked with clams (including engaged
loading and unloading operations), found that he had
disappeared warts on his hands, from which he could not get rid
some years. These facts finally convinced Australian scientists.

on the subject of antiviral properties.
And now a group of Australian bioengineers are working on
synthesizing isolate of this protein from sea snails. Not yet
it is decided in what form the new medicinal product will be produced

convinced that they are developing innovative anti-virus
a drug that has no analogues. A new cure for herpes and
warts should not only facilitate the course of a viral infection,
relieve symptoms, but also reduce the risk of recurrence or recurrence
