Abstract

Abstract

Bivalent and antivenin was prepared in horses by using formol-treated venom (toxoid), followed by increasing doses of unmodified venom. The neutralization capacity of purified, concentrated antiserum was three times that of the crude. Cross-immunodiffusion studies revealed patterns of identity or partial identity with viper venoms (, and from Egypt; , and from Iran), while only very faint and weak precipitin lines were observed with elapid venoms ( and from Egypt; from Iran; from India). Results of in vivo cross-neutralization tests showed some relation to those of the immunodiffusion studies.
