Experimental pathophysiology of systemic alterations induced by Bothrops asper snake venom
Moderate and severe envenomations by the snake Bothrops asper provoke systemic alterations, such as systemic bleeding, coagulopathy, hypovolemia, hemodynamic instability and shock, and acute renal failure. Systemic hemorrhage ...
The lethality test used for estimating the potency of antivenoms against Bothrops asper snake venom: Pathophysiological mechanisms, prophylactic analgesia, and a surrogate in vitro assay
The potency of antivenoms is assessed by analyzing the neutralization of venom-induced lethality, and is expressed as the Median Effective Dose (ED50). The present study was designed to investigate the pathophysiological ...
