BIO-GEN leeches on “Good Morning TVN”

Leeches have been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. Their health-improving benefits were recognised as far back as antiquity. The most recognisable substance that the leech delivers to the host is hirudin. In addition to hirudin, we now know of the existence of more than 100 other compounds that the leech produces.

These and other curiosities were shared with TVN viewers watching the morning programme ‘Dzień Dobry TVN’ on 18 December 2018.

During the live entry filmed at the new BIO-GEN headquarters in Lodz, Filip Chajzer – TVN presenter – underwent leech therapy.
