Dolphins may hold key to healing human infections

Posted:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

Researchers at Georgetown University Medical Center are turning to dolphins to learn more about human healing.

Dolphins are able to recover from shark bites at an extremely fast rate, without infection or any outward sign of pain.

Researchers think their blubber contains antibiotic properties that helps prevent infection.

They hope to use this information to develop new methods for treating human injuries.
