The therapeutic activity of the leech is not based on a single mechanism of action, but on a combination of multiple effects. The leech’s saliva is truly extraordinary, containing a number of chemical compounds useful in medicine. These include a local anesthetic that the leech uses to avoid detection by the host, an anti-coagulant, hirudin, that can help prevent heart attacks and strokes, a vasodilator and a prostaglandin that help reduce swelling. The leech’s gut harbors a bacterium known as Aeromonan hydrophila. This bacterium aids in the digestion of ingested blood and produces an antibiotic that kills other bacteria that may cause putrefaction. The medical term for such a cornucopia of effects is called a “multifactorial mechanism.”Learn More
