Development of a chicken-derived antivenom against the taipan snake (Oxyuranus scutellatus) venom and comparison with an equine antivenom
A chicken-derived antivenom (ChDAv) towards taipan snake (Oxyuranus scutellatus) venom was produced by purifying anti-taipan IgY from egg yolks of hens immunized with taipan venom. The productivity, antivenomic profile, ...
Role of the animal model on the pharmacokinetics of equine-derived antivenoms
Antivenom pharmacokinetics has been studied in heterologous models in which the animal species used as immunoglobulin source is different from that used as recipient. In these models, after intravenous administration of ...
Study of the design and analytical properties of the lethality neutralization assay used to estimate antivenom potency against Bothrops asper snake venom
The lethality neutralization assay performed in mice is the standard recommended by the World Health Organization to estimate antivenom potency. The interpretation of its results without considering its analytical capacity ...
Industrial Production and Quality Control of Snake Antivenoms
The production of snake antivenoms involves stages such as production of venom, immunization of animals to generate hyperimmune plasma, immunoglobulin purification, viral inactivation (or removal), and stabilization of the ...
