    A recent paper on the testing of anesthetics on octopuses let me to start a thread to collect the rare bits of medical information that is available. To start, I added the anesthetics paper and will attempt to locate and link some of the threads discussing the use of antibiotics for infection.

    Please add new information as you find it.
