Abstract

Abstract

A purified antivenin was tested against Egyptian and venoms, Indian venom, Iranian , and venoms, and venom from both Iran and Egypt. The different elapid venoms, with the exception of that of , showed a considerable number of identical and similar precipitin components by immunodiffusion and immunoelectrophoresis. On the other hand, only a few identical and partially identical lines were detected when this antiserum was tested against the viper venoms. Cross neutralization tests in mice showed variable degrees of protection by the antiserum against the different venoms studied; there was no direct correlation with the immunodiffusion results.
