Terran experiments with a captured zerg brood resulted in the creation of mutates such as Sistask, who became a member of the Alliance. Nanites were used to keep the mutates' violent impulses in check... barely.
The protoss had devised a "radical nanotech serum" which could reverse the infestation process. After the Brood War, Artanis summoned his terran ally, Jim Raynor, to help solve a problem. Their old adversary, Alexei Stukov, had been resurrected by a zerg cerebrate, Kaloth, and had returned to the world of Braxis. Raynor and his small force were given samples of the serum to inject Stukov with, in order to return Stukov to normal. The experiment was a success.
The nanotech could not be delivered efficiently in large quantities. Since then, the zerg have likely developed an immunity to the nanotech.
