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 ...
Proteomic analysis of venom variability and ontogeny across the arboreal palm-pitvipers (genus Bothriechis)
Bothriechis is a genus of eleven currently recognized slender and arboreal venomous snakes, commonly called palm-pitvipers that range from southern Mexico to northern South America. Despite dietary studies suggesting that ...
Antivenomics: a proteomics tool for studying the immunoreactivity of antivenoms
Envenoming following snakebite is largely a neglected threat to public health in tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, Asia, Latin America and Oceania addicting some of the world’s poorest rural communities. An ...
Venomic analysis of the poorly studied desert coral snake, Micrurus tschudii tschudii, supports the 3FTx/PLA2 dichotomy across Micrurus venoms
The venom proteome of the poorly studied desert coral snake Micrurus tschudii tschudii was unveiled using a venomic approach, which identified ¥38 proteins belonging to only four snake venom protein families. The ...
