Studies at Nova Southeastern University have found that great white and hammerhead sharks possess genes that have evolved hundred of millions of years to resist cancer and accelerate wound healing. It is amazing to see how sharks and rays have become the efficient predators they are today. Their immunity has adapted to resist disease and allow them to regenerate at high rates.
Scientists found two genes, legumain and Bag1, They also found that sharks contain certain antibodies that accelerate healing from open wounds. Although, the all of the data is still in process, it presents the potential for use in the future.
