Preclinical evaluation of the efficacy of antivenoms for snakebite envenoming: State-of-the-art and challenges ahead
Animal-derived antivenoms constitute the mainstay in the therapy of snakebite envenoming. The efficacy of antivenoms to neutralize toxicity of medically-relevant snake venoms has to be demonstrated through meticulous ...
Strategies in 'snake venomics' aiming at an integrative view of compositional, functional, and immunological characteristics of venoms
This work offers a general overview on the evolving strategies for the proteomic analysis of snake venoms, and discusses how these may be combined through diverse experimental approaches with the goal of achieving a more ...
A bright future for integrative venomics
Venomous secretions are produced by a myriad of animal species, from invertebrates to vertebrates. As a general rule, peptides and proteins represent the most abundant and functionally relevant components of these dangerous ...
