Biotherapy is the use of live animals to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Though most of us are familiar with biotherapeutic modalities like leech therapy or guide dogs, a dozen other live animals and microbes are being used to treat ailments from acute infections to chronic wounds, from multiple sclerosis to cancer, from cerebral palsy to autism, from psoriasis to rheumatoid arthritis, even for chronic pain and palliative care.
