It was explained on Star Trek that a Vulcan's blood was copper-based rather than iron.


Ceci n'est pas un seing.

true, that, I remember



On the USA channel last week, an injury encountered green blood
and the patient had been taking sulfa-based drugs for migraines.
He had been up in outer space and wanted to go back but could not
with migraines, so these pills allegedly helped. No medical
background here, but the explanation reminded me of this thread.

Very interesting Luke.
'The Case Of The Man With The Green Blood' could be a title of a Sherlock Holmes mystery.

The drug might have been sumatriptan....which in large doses can cause sulfhemoglobinemia..where the blood changes from red to greenish-black, due to the action of sulphur with the hemoglobin molecule.

That is exactly what it was. The show was "Royal Pains" and
they usually have the medical stuff correct, at least
according to medical personnel I've spoken with.

And that word (sulphe......)is where I got the term
"sulpha drug" in previous post. Thanks.
