Breeding and raising medicinal leeches in captivity


Leeches have been used for therapeutic purposes since antiquity due to their beneficial effects in maintaining human health, but the advancements of modern medicine has mitigated their role and has increasingly limited their use. Even so there are doctors which are confident in the medical potential of leeches and the studies made by researchers have shown that in the leech's saliva there are substances that can not be reproduced in the laboratory as of right now.

Today they are used successfully in clinics of plastic and reconstructive surgery, in the relief of various diseases and in the cosmetic industry.

Leeches used in medicine are grown in a sterile medium, so their use is safe.
