    Could we use Lucilia cuprina to eat G-bactera or yeasts like Candida on diabetic wounds,for example,on feet's fingers to avoid cutting? Do you know if there is a team studing this problem? Could we work better with veterinaries to understand if animals "use" maggots to repair their wounds? Several years ago,when I worked in a general laboratory and microbiology, I remember we found eggs of cowflies on feet's fingers wounds of a neurological rested man and we thougt:" what a durty way to manage this man had the family" but, on the contrary, could be a natural way to solve the problem, of course, changig the fly!Thank you for your attention.
