Two other phyla with many amoebae (Amoebozoa, typically with lobose pseudopods; and Cercozoa (1, 5) with usually filose or reticulose pseudopods) also include some zooflagellates.
In addition to the sarcomonads, the new phylum Cercozoa includes many filose amoebae, chlorarachnean algae, the reticulose Gymnophrys, Plasmodiophora, and a variety of zooflagellates (e.g., Bodomorpha, Allas) not previously classified.
Advanced Viral Research Corporation (Yonkers, NY; 954-458-7636) announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued two patents covering newly discovered uses of Reticulose. One, United States Patent 5,807,839 titled, "A Method for Stimulating Red Blood Cell Production," describes a use of one of the stimulation effects of Reticulose on bone marrow.
"With further research, we hope to establish a therapeutic role for Reticulose in the stimulation of red blood cell production, particularly in patients with immune system dysfunction requiring immunomodulating therapy, and in veterinary therapeutic markets as well.
