Throughout human history, many molluscs have been used for medicinal purposes. There is a lot of potential for further research of molluscs and compounds found in them which may be applied in treatment for numerous diseases and health conditions. Many compounds with anticarcinogenic, antiviral, antibacterial activity have been discovered, as well as toxins that could be used in neurological and chronic pain treatment. Also, more and more attention is given to adhesive mechanisms of bivalves to different surfaces as possible sources for new discoveries in the area of biological adhesives.
