Neutralization of four Peruvian Bothrops sp. snake venoms by polyvalent antivenoms produced in Perú and Costa Rica: preclinical assessment
Envenomations after bites inflicted by snakes of the genus Bothrops constitute a public health hazard in Perú, and the intravenous administration of equine-derived antivenoms represents the only scientifically validated ...
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 ...
Isolation of a galactose-binding lectin from the venom of the snake Bothrops godmani (Godmann's pit viper).
A galactose-binding lectin, isolated from the venom of B. gotlmani by affinity chromatography . is an acidic protein (pI 4.9) with a subunit mol. wt of about 14,000, occurring mostly as a disulfide-linked dimer of 28,000. ...
Effect of storage temperature on the stability of polyvalent antivenom produced in Costa Rica.
The effect of storage temperature on the stability of the liquid polyvalent (crotaline) antivenom produced at the Instituto Clodomiro Picado, Costa Rica, was studied during a twelve-month period. The following parameters ...
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 ...
