Abstract

Abstract

Antivenins currently used in Southeast Asia to treat snake-bite were administered to mice to determine their effectiveness in the prevention of local tissue damage after envenomation. Antivenins were more effective when injected immediately after venom injection or mixed with venom before injection. When the antivenin was given 10 and 30 minutes later, its effectiveness was reduced accordingly. Intravenous injection of antivenin was more effective in preventing death than intramuscular injection.
