18,20 The single most significant factor for anti snake venom producers is that venom sources for development are not readily available, with only Daboia russelii pulchella and Naja naja available for Sri Lanka.21 Previous attempts at producing a new anti snake venom for Sri Lanka resulted in an anti snake venom that was no more effective than the current Indian import and was considerably more expensive.18 Despite the reference to approximately 30,000 envenomings in Sri Lanka, other published work, including many of the same authors, clearly shows a likely envenomings number of 14,375 and an anti snake venom requirement of 143,000 vials per annum.12,22
