Crocodile immune system destroys HIV

Slashdot:

In an ongoing effort to stop the spread of HIV, scientists in Australia have discovered that crocodiles can fight off HIV and kill the virus. This is a major boon to medicine because the crocodile serum can also fight things that are penicillin resistant such as staphylococcus aureus.

I immediately thought of Deep Waters, and the other cheesy B-rated sci-fi films on SciFi. As long as we don’t turn into weird genetic freaks, I’m all for creating a crocodile serum.
