Inhibition by CaNa2EDTA of local tissue damage induced by Bothrops asper (terciopelo) venom: Application in horse immunization for antivenom production
The ability of the chelating agent CaNa2EDTA to inhibit local tissue damage induced by Bothrops asper venom was studied in mice and in horses used for polyvalent (Crotalinae) antivenom production. CaNa2EDTA was devoid of ...
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 ...
Comparative study of the edema-forming activity of Costa Rican snake venoms and its neutralization by a polyvalent antivenom
The edema-forming activity of eight Costa Rican crotaline snake venoms and its neutralization by a polyvalent antivenom were studied using the mouse footpad test. All of the venoms induced edema, the highest activity being ...
Neutralization of proteolytic and hemorrhagic activities of Costa Rican snake venoms by a polyvalent antivenom
The polyvalent antivenom produced at the Instituto Clodomiro Picado, Costa Rica, was tested for its capacity to neutralize proteolytic and hemorrhagic activities of ten Costa Rican crotaline venoms. In experiments with ...
