Abstract

Summary

The agar double diffusion method of Ouchterlony indicates that rattlesnake venoms are composed of at least 4 to 7 antigenic fractions. At least 3 of these are widely shared within the group and at least 3 others are less widely shared. There is reason to believe one of the latter fractions may be associated with a powerful neurotoxin. The venoms of the rattlesnakes have one or more antigens in common with the venoms of the North American moccasins, . The North American crotalid antivenin (Wyeth) is immunologically polyvalent against the venoms of all of the 14 species of rattlesnakes tested.
