The trial is performed to assess efficacy and safety of a purified standardised bee venom preparation in bee venom allergy
Dendritic cells (DC) play a key role in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases. The regulation of blood dendritic cells in patients with hymenoptera venom allergy before and during immune t...
Study wishes to determine if the use of injectable bee venom is a safe and effective treatment for persons with mild to moderate knee Osteoarthritis and would result in decreased report of...
The trial is performed to assess efficacy and safety of a purified standardised wasp venom preparation in wasp venom allergy
The study will evaluate Apitox, pure honeybee venom as a treatment for pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis of the knee.
Venom immunotherapy (VIT) is considered to be the gold-standard treatment for patients with Hymenoptera venom allergy. Data regarding VIT in bee venom (BV) allergic patients are scarce.
Venom immunotherapy (VIT) is an established and effective treatment for patients with Hymenoptera venom allergies. Especially during the build-up of VIT, systemic allergic reactions are a key issue.
Solitary hunting wasps are abundant and diverse hymenopteran insects that disable prey using venom. The venom may possess neuromodulation, immunomodulatory, metabolic-modulatory and antimicrobial func...
Hymenoptera venom immunotherapy (VIT) extracts can be non-purified aqueous, purified aqueous, or purified aluminium hydroxide adsorbed ("depot") preparations. All of these are efficacious, but the cho...
Snake venoms are complex mixtures of a large number of distinct proteins and peptides with biological activity. Peptide spectral libraries are compilations of previously identified MS/MS spectra obtai...
Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.
A family of extremely venomous snakes, comprising coral snakes, cobras, mambas, kraits, and sea snakes. They are widely distributed, being found in the southern United States, South America, Africa, southern Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. The elapids include three subfamilies: Elapinae, Hydrophiinae, and Lauticaudinae. Like the viperids, they have venom fangs in the front part of the upper jaw. The mambas of Africa are the most dangerous of all snakes by virtue of their size, speed, and highly toxic venom. (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, p329-33)
Arthropods of the order Scorpiones, of which 1500 to 2000 species have been described. The most common live in tropical or subtropical areas. They are nocturnal and feed principally on insects and other arthropods. They are large arachnids but do not attack man spontaneously. They have a venomous sting. Their medical significance varies considerably and is dependent on their habits and venom potency rather than on their size. At most, the sting is equivalent to that of a hornet but certain species possess a highly toxic venom potentially fatal to humans. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Smith, Insects and Other Arthropods of Medical Importance, 1973, p417; Barnes, Invertebrate Zoology, 5th ed, p503)
A class of polyamine and peptide toxins which are isolated from the venom of spiders such as Agelenopsis aperta.
A genus of elapid snake indigenous to Southern Africa. It is closely related to the cobras (Naja) and is capable of spitting its venom.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
