Lt. Korax compared humans to Regulan bloodworms on Deep Space Station K-7 in 2268: they are both "soft and spineless" (TOS "The Trouble with Tribbles")

According to Dr. Phlox, Regulan bloodworms are excellent for filtering toxins. (ENT "Two Days and Two Nights") Phlox has used these harmless worms for years to clean a patient's lymphatic system, but are difficult to replace. (ENT "Stratagem", Phlox held one up with a pair of forceps and the app. 4-inch long worms were, indeed, quite soft).  Information about Regulan bloodworms was displayed by the computer as a graphic in Keiko O'Brien's schoolroom on Deep Space 9 (DS9 "A Man Alone", "The Nagus") and in the infirmary aboard Deep Space 9 (DS9 "Babel").  Cf. http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Regulan_bloodworm for details and images.
