Improving antivenom availability and accessibility: Science, technology, and beyond
Snakebite envenomings constitute a serious and neglected public health problem. Despite the fact that effective treatment exists, i.e. administration of animal-derived antivenoms, the availability and accessibility of these life-saving immunobiologicals is deficitary in various parts of the world, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa [Leer más]

Second generation snake antivenomics: Comparing immunoaffinity and immunodepletion protocols
A second generation antivenomics protocol, based on affinity chromatography, was compared with a previously (first generation) immunodepletion protocol using as a proof of principle the pan-African EchiTAb-Plus-ICP® IgG antivenom and the venoms of Echis ocellatus, Bitis arietans, and African spitting cobras. The [Leer más]

Low pH formulation of whole IgG antivenom: Impact on quality, safety, neutralizing potency and viral inactivation
Low pH treatment improves the tolerance to intravenous infusion, the stability, and the viral safety of various therapeutic immunoglobulins G preparations, but has never been evaluated for horse plasma-derived antivenoms. We have studied the impact [Leer más]
