Crocodillin - Kill all Viruses and bacteria

The Antidote is a unique Anti-Microbial Peptide offering the widest range of healing power on the market today. It kills all known deadly VIRUSES and BACTERIA in the body. The initial research was carried out over several years ago by the BBC.

Its been a lot, lot longer than 4 years that this research is going on; an e-mail from the original researchers, well one of them, in Australia follows at the end of this.

For an overview, see:

Peptide antibiotics isolated from crocodilians and other animals
who demonstrate immunity to infection do not, in theory, provide immunity per se but behave as any antibiotic. They are easily syntheiszed as well. This company may be subverting the need for a prescription for such drugs (e.g. crocodillin, magainins) even if they were available which they are not, by claiming that the animal's enzyme triggers production of such peptides in people. There do not seem to be any clinical trials or direct evidence that this has been confirmed so this exploitation of an otherwise mostly true set of circumstances may be yet another unregulated, unproven attempt to sell a product whose purported value has not been clinically proven. I would like to see the clinical studies that back up their testimonial evidence. It would also be nice to show that the enzyme in question actually provokes manufacture of crocodile antibiotic peptides in human beings! Why do I doubt this? ALSO: The researchers who discovered crocodillin make no such claims for this drug (see below) which they admit they haven't even fully sequenced:

The excerpts and statements on their own website are also true, standing in isolation:

from the original researchers in an e-mail found on the internet:


The saltwater crocodile shows a low incidence of infection from serious injuries sustained during intraspecific aggression, in spite of the microbe-laden environment in which it lives. This suggests a well-developed innate immune system, which provides a rapid, non-specific first line of host defense. In other aquatic species such as amphibians and fish, this defense is found in the mucous skin secretions as antimicrobial peptides.

Due to the anatomy of the crocodile, we reasoned that a homologous defense would be found in the circulatory system, either as soluble factors or as agents expressed in phagocytic cells. To address the first hypothesis, we extracted serum from wild saltwater crocodiles to isolate naturally occurring antibiotics. The serum was maintained at -80C until fractionation.
Serum was fractionated by Reverse-phase HPLC on a C-18 column with a 0-60% acetonitrile gradient, and fractions were assayed for antibiotic activity against E. coli in a modified radial diffusion assay. Preliminary results indicated strong antibiotic activity in several fractions. We have taken a single fraction, eluting at 13% acetonitrile, for further characterization.
Based on our initial observations, we predict that the crocodile
exhibits both peptide and non-peptide based antimicrobial activity in its blood.

Current status is that blood has been sampled from over a dozen species (a similar compound was later discovered in Crocodylus johnstoni) but further results are pending. As we have no funding to continue this work, we're doing as much as possible in our spare time (which is virtually non-existent).

The latest chapter of this story is that a company in the UK is now selling a product called "The Antidote" which they claim is based on "crocodillin".

As we have not fully sequenced the molecule, this is a curious thing to say.

Mind you, they also claim that it cures AIDS, SARS, cancer and various other ills, so I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions.

this was in an e-mail from Adam Britton.

Ancient cultures especially pygmies believed that to eat an enemy or powerful creature which they hunted for food would endow them with the power of the enemy or creature so devoured. This barbaric practice of eating one’s enemy would not be tolerated in this modern world of today but, the inbuilt instinct of these ancient cultures were not so very far from the truth.

With modern scientific technology the truth of these ancient cultures and their beliefs are laid bare by modern science. By scientifically extracting these properties and their proteins from the blood of creatures such as the Australian Salt Water Crocodile (Crocodylus Porusus) all sorts of modern natural proteins are being discovered which can protect human beings from diseases that are kept active by deadly viruses and bacteria in the body also enabling faster healing of wounds.

The amino acid protein configurations (which protect these creatures in virus and bacteria infested environments) are then concentrated by the use of a special catalyst to increase the multiplication ratio of the protein thereby resulting in a powerful yet natural protein for human application.

The Antidote does not require a prescription or medical consultation before being taken as it is a natural alternative to Antibiotics or drugs which have failed to kill the virulent viruses or bacteria that have developed an immunity to the current antibiotics and drugs produced by modern medicine.

There are Good and Bad proteins circulating in many forms on this planet of ours. Take for instance the Bad protein carried by a bird in 1918. That bird transmitted the protein content to a human being who then mutated the protein inside the body and transmitted that same protein in its mutant form to other human beings resulting in the death of some 20 million people.

Hard to believe? Absolutely true if, one cares to check out the records for that period. That is why the world scientists of today are so very worried about the SARS epidemic currently being spread by birds developing or mutating into a similar bad protein culminating into a similar epidemic like 1918.

I do some google research and get this

Scientists in the United States have isolated a powerful agent in crocodile blood which could help conquer human infections immune to standard antibiotics.

The discovery was made thanks to the curiosity of a BBC science producer filming a documentary on salt-water crocodiles in Australia, BBC Director-General Greg Dyke revealed on Thursday.

In tests, this substance kills strains of virulent bacteria that are resistant to all standard antibiotics

BBC chief Greg Dyke

"Our producer noticed something that surprised her - despite the horrendous injuries the crocs inflict on each other, their wounds rarely get infected," he told the annual dinner of the Science Museum in London.

"She discussed this with a young croc expert who agreed that it would be interesting to try to find out why.

"After many adventures, they got their blood samples and last week a leading research institute isolated from these samples what I'm told is a novel anti-microbial peptide.
Bacteria 'blown away'

"In tests, this substance kills strains of virulent bacteria that are resistant to all standard antibiotics," Mr Dyke said.

Named crocodillin, it may one day be used in drugs to treat human infections.

Just in time to take advantage of people worried about a shortage of flu vaccines in the United States, the following spam has been making the rounds, winding up several times lately in my own inbox, titled "remedy to flu vaccine shortage" (with formatting intact):

The U.S. faces a massive shortage of flu vaccine this winter due to a slip-up at a Chiron lab in England. The need for a new production method is suddenly dire.It's the beginning of the flu seas on,and again the U.S.  is short of flu vaccine, but this time the shortfall is disastrous.

Can't They Just Make More? What happened?

A major manufacturer of flu vaccine, Chiron, will not be distributing any influenza vaccine for this flu season.
This means that almost half of the USA's flu vaccine will not be delivered.

Answers to Questions About the Flu Vaccine Shortage.

If you had the flu last year, you know how bad it can make you feel. You're hot one minute, cold the next, your head aches, and you're completely out of energy. Some people, however, never got the flu because they got ANTIDOTE an alternative natural remedy to flu. And this year, because there's a shortage of traditional flu vaccines, the demand for Anti-dote has gone through the roof.

1. It is an Alternative to DRUGS & ANTIBIOTICS.

2. It is a Miracle Anti-Microbial Peptide than can help people with serious diseases and Kills ALL known deadly Viruses & Bacteria in the body and can help people with Influenza, SARS, Cancer, HIV, etc.

3. The healing power of this Anti-Microbial Peptide has been featured recently on several news media such as the ABC News Online, BBC News, Animal, Blue Sky,,, BBC News, Nova Online,,, McNeese State Univeristy, BBC Nature News, Islam Online, and reputable doctors have all given testimonials praising the power of the Antidote.



Therefore, I am recommending that you place your order ASAP from the site - the cost is only a measly $49 to protect yourself and your family starting from today.

Thank you

Evan Epps

No thanks. I do not want to be contacted again

Of course, the "remove me from mailing" link goes to a website completely unrelated to this miracle remedy, but the other link goes to a website which sells something called The Antidote, "the all inclusive miracle that will kill all viruses and bacteria your body can throw at it."
According to the BBC's own website, this is pretty much true. But have scientists really been able to take what they've learned about crocodile peptides and put them to use in humans? And if so, why is this miracle cure being sold by spammers instead of, say, big drug companies?

According to The Antidote's website, " have simply taken the crocodile’s best weapon against infection and made it functional for human application." If it was so "simply" done, why is there no information on how it was done? And where are the tests showing that it's safe for humans to take crocodile peptides? Where are the double-blind studies showing the effectiveness of The Antidote? And what's the chemical makeup of the substance? Where's all the information that one usually finds for medicines?

crocodillin Kills al viruses and bacteria

Today I get a mail with this text:

“The Peptide is a Protein Extract from Crocodylus Porusus, the largest living crocodile in existence and the most ancient living species on earth (over 20 million years old). A Peptide is a Natural Protein made up of Amino Acids strung together that destroy powerful viruses and bacteria by penetrating their membranes. have simply taken the crocodile’s best weapon against infection and made it functional for human application.

The Antidote does not require a prescription or medical consultation before being taken as it is a natural alternative to Antibiotics or drugs which have failed to kill virulent viruses or bacteria that have developed an immunity to current antibiotics and drugs produced by modern medicine.

The common cold is a thing of the past, even serious infectious diseases such as Cancer, HIV, SARS and many other life threatening diseases can be helped by the miracle healing powers of the Antidote.

We recommend the Antidote be taken yearly to ensure ongoing full protection. For more serious conditions we recommend the antidote be taken every 3 months.”

So I decide to start an investigation on this Peptide and the results and start Blogging my results
