Dec. 12, 2021 - PRLog -- Horseshoe crabs are older than dinosaurs. They have existed for 450 million years, which means that they have observed the rise and fall of millions of other species and survived the ice age. Not only are they incredible "living fossils", they also help most of us survive.

COVID-19: Possible Treatments Leading To Cure?

In many parts of the world, researchers will rely on horseshoe crab blood in those important tests to find possible treatments for the new coronavirus. Horseshoe Crabs have unique blue copper based blood that contains Lysate, which is used in the pharmaceutical world to help create vaccines for diseases like COVID-19. Lysate is used because of its natural reaction to clot together when put together with bacterial toxins. More recently, a synthetic version of their blood has been made to stop the practice of harvesting the animals for this purpose.

Contrary to their name, they are more closely related to spiders and scorpions than crabs. They are quite unique for their many strange features. For example, they have a total of 9 eyes, found all over the body, with light receptors towards the end of their body. They have 3 main components to their body: head, abdomen, and tail.

As the government hopes to vaccinate millions of people in a short period of time, horseshoe crabs may play a vital role in curing COVID-19. If you have been vaccinated, it is likely that you have used limulus blood for safety testing. They are about to save more lives because they play their part in creating Covid-19 injections.
