Understanding medicine with frogs

By MML • Cure • 9 May 2012

For our global health cure class, we dissected frogs  to understand how their organs are similar to our organs. We did this because we want to find out ways to combat disease. By dissecting frogs, we can better understand different organs. During this process, we looked at the frogs brain, lungs and kidneys. We also measured its hind legs  and forelegs to see exactly how big they are.

In this article, scientist talk about how they found a medicine ooze that is found in frog skin. This medicine ooze is supposed to cure disease for humans in the future
