An Anaphylactoid Reaction to Rattlesnake Envenomation in a Pediatric Patient.

Rattlesnake envenomation causes a spectrum of symptoms and signs, many of which closely resemble an anaphylactic reaction. Development of airway compromise after a snake bite to an extremity is unusua...

Snake Bite Envenomation in a Tertiary Care Centre.

In India, it is estimated that up to 20,000 people die annually from snake bites. The present study was carried to out to estimate the snake bite related epidemiology, predictors of severity, relation...

A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study Comparing CroFab® Versus Placebo With Rescue Treatment for Copperhead Snake Envenomation

This study will evaluate the recovery from copperhead snake bite in patients with mild or moderate venom effect. Potential subjects will receive CroFab antivenom or placebo. The trial is ...

A Comparative Study on Local Allergic Responses of Bee Venom and Essential Bee Venom Pharmacopuncture

This double-blinded randomized clinical trial investigates any differences in allergic responses elicited by Bee Venom (BV) and Essential Bee Venom (e-BV).

A Study to Compare Adaptive Support Ventilation vs. Volume Controlled Ventilation for Management of Respiratory Failure in Patients With Neuroparalytic Snake Envenomation

Neuroparalytic snake envenomation results in severe muscle weakness and respiratory failure. Treatment requires administration of anti-snake venom and supportive care in the form of invasi...

Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of Two Treatment Schemes With Antivipmyn ® for the Treatment of Snake Bite Envenomation

The purpose of this study is to compare whether a same total dose given up front as a single dose is more effective and as safe as the same dose given as a fractioned dose. Evaluate the U...

Routine Antibiotic vs. Directed Antibiotic Treatment in Snake Bite

Clinicians tend to overuse antibiotics in snake bite despite evidence from three previous clinical trials that failed to show a benefit. But, none of these trials was done in India. Furthe...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Bites by snakes. Bite by a venomous snake is characterized by stinging pain at the wound puncture. The venom injected at the site of the bite is capable of producing a deleterious effect on the blood or on the nervous system. (Webster's 3d ed; from Dorland, 27th ed, at snake, venomous)

A genus of elapid snake indigenous to Southern Africa. It is closely related to the cobras (Naja) and is capable of spitting its venom.

A synthetic nonapeptide (Pyr-Trp-Pro-Arg-Pro-Gln-Ile-Pro-Pro) which is identical to the peptide from the venom of the snake, Bothrops jararaca. It inhibits kininase II and ANGIOTENSIN I and has been proposed as an antihypertensive agent.

Toxins isolated from the venom of Laticauda semifasciata, a sea snake (Hydrophid); immunogenic, basic polypeptides of 62 amino acids, folded by four disulfide bonds, block neuromuscular end-plates irreversibly, thus causing paralysis and severe muscle damage; they are similar to Elapid neurotoxins.

Solutions or mixtures of toxic and nontoxic substances elaborated by snake (Ophidia) salivary glands for the purpose of killing prey or disabling predators and delivered by grooved or hollow fangs. They usually contain enzymes, toxins, and other factors.
