Effect of geographical variation of Echis ocellatus, Naja nigricollis and Bitis arietans venoms on their neutralization by homologous and heterologous antivenoms
Two antivenoms prepared by using Echis ocellatus, Bitis arietans and Naja nigricollis venoms from different locations in sub-Saharan Africa were compared for their neutralizing ability. Both antivenoms were similarly ...
Snake venomics and antivenomics of Protobothrops mucrosquamatus and Viridovipera stejnegeri from Taiwan: Keys to understand the variable immune response in horses
The proteomes of the venoms of the snakes Viridovipera stejnegeri and Protobothrops mucrosquamatus from Taiwan were characterized by N-terminal sequencing, MALDI-TOF mass fingerprinting, and collision-induced dissociation ...
Role of the animal model on the pharmacokinetics of equine-derived antivenoms
Antivenom pharmacokinetics has been studied in heterologous models in which the animal species used as immunoglobulin source is different from that used as recipient. In these models, after intravenous administration of ...
Preclinical evaluation of caprylic-acid fractionated IgG antivenom for the treatment of taipan (Oxyuranus scutellatus) envneoming in Papua New Guinea
