A project to extract anti-liver cancer medicine from sea cucumbers is currently underway at Shahid Beheshti University of Tehran, announced Abasali Matlabi, head of Iran Aquatics Knowledge, Industry and Market Coordination Association.

“The project is undertaken by the association in cooperation with Shahid Beheshti University and funded by the Vice-Presidency for Science and Technology,” he was quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.

The vice-presidency has adopted a new approach to address and incorporate the  diverse topics and technologies related to this field. “We are planning to establish a Specific Pathogen Free (SPF) center for touts given the fact that the freshwater fish is hugely popular,” Matlabi said, outlining measures taken by the association.
