Special Issue "Interactions of Snake Venoms and Antivenoms: Prelude to Protection"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2021.
A fundamental tenant for the clinical use of antivenoms is that interactions between venoms and antivenoms (i.e., binding) must occur before there can be any protection against venom toxicity or lethality. Binding would therefore be a prelude to protection; however, binding does not guarantee protection. The relationship between binding and protection varies depending upon snake venom composition and the specific binding characteristics of the antivenom. The main focus of this Special Issue is to provide a forum for evaluating correlations between the in vitro quantitation of venom–antivenom binding and in vivo protection by antivenoms against venom toxicity or lethality.
