South American snake venom proteins antigenically-related to Bothrops asper myotoxins.
the presence of proteins antigenically related to Bothrops asper myotoxins in various snake venoms, mainly from South America, was investigated by using poluclonal and monoclonal antibodies. 2. Myotoxin-like components ...
Evaluation of the neutralizing ability of antivenoms for the treatment of snake bite envenoming in Central America
De nombreuses envenimations ophidiennes en Amérique centrale sont dues aux crotales (famille des Viperidae) parmi lesquels Bothrops asper est le principal responsable. Quelques accidents sont provoqués par les serpents ...
Immunoglobulin G and F(ab')2 polyvalent antivenoms do not differ in their ability to neutralize hemorrhage, edema and myonecrosis induced by Bothrops asper (terciopelo) snake venom
The ability of whole immunoglobulin G (IgG) and F(ab')2 polyvalent (Crotalinae) antivenoms to neutralize the hemorrhagic, edema-forming and myotoxic activities of Bothrops asper venom was studied. Both antivenoms were ...
Neutralization of local tissue damage induced by Bothrops asper (terciopelo) snake venom
Local tissue damage represents a serious consequence of Bothrops asper envenomations. It encompasses a complex series of alterations, including myonecrosis, dermonecrosis, hemorrhage and edema. Due to its rapid development ...
The venom of Bothrops asper from Guatemala: toxic activities and neutralization by antivenoms
Bothrops asper is responsible for approximately half of the snakebite envenomations in Central America. Despite its medical relevance, only the venom of Costa Rican populations of this species has been studied to some ...
