At a Glance

Because every drug certified by the FDA must be tested using the horseshoe crab derivative known as Limulus lysate, a multimillion-dollar industry has emerged involving the license to breed horseshoe crabs and the rights to their breeding grounds. In this lecture, trace the discovery of lysate testing and examine the exploitation of horseshoe crabs, a species that has helped with the development of countless drugs and is fast becoming endangered.
