how does snake anti venom work?



  1. 0 Votes

    Snake antivenom is procured from different animals by injecting them with small amounts of venom and capturing the antibodies that respond to it. The antibodies are then purified and stored for future use as an antivenom. Some antivenins, called monovalent, only work against the venom of a single species of snake, while others, called polyvalent, work against that of several different species.

    Antivenom is a biological product used in the treatment of venomous bites or stings. Antivenom is created by injecting a small amount of the targeted venom into an animal such as a horse, sheep, rabbit, etc.; the subject animal will undergo an immune response to the venom, producing antibodies against the venom’s active molecule which can then be harvested from the animal’s blood and used to treat envenomation.
