Anti-Clotting Drug Based on Bat Saliva
Tue Sep 28, 11:31 AM   

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Stroke victims being treated at a Louisville hospital 
may benefit from the lessons of the vampire bat.

Researchers at University of Louisville Hospital are studying whether 
the bats' ability to drink the blood of an animal while preventing the 
blood from clotting might help control damaging strokes.[cont.]

Could this be better than Heperin for cryonics perfusion purposes?
