  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).

  Klingon Lt. Korax compared humans to Regulan bloodworms on Deep Space Station K-7 in 2268: both are "soft and spineless" (i.e. {pIp ghajbe'bogh}) (TOS "The Trouble with Tribbles")

  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.
