They have hemotoxic
venom, according to herpetologist Jeff Beane, collections manager of amphibians and reptiles at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.
It is a hemotoxic
and carcinogenic substance which, furthermore, is extensively used in the production chain of petroleum extraction and refining and the making of iron, mostly on account of its presence in the raw materials of these processes (1,3).
A total of 758 cases of venomous snakebite (439 hemotoxic
and 319 neurotoxic) were reported during the study.
symptoms may include intense pain, edema, petechiae, and ecchymosis from coagulopathy.
The changes indicate that venom has severe hemotoxic
potential and disrupts physiological processes by affecting vital organs like kidneys and liver in mice.
While considered effective against the hemotoxic
effects of all North American Rattlesnakes, Copperheads, and Cottonmouths, it is not effective against the Mojave Rattlesnake's neurotoxins.
According to the Indian snake bite treatment protocol, In case of hemotoxic
poisoning repeat dose of ASV is usually required.
The DWELs of clarithromycin, thiamphenicol, and sulfamethazine were derived based on inhibition of intestinal microbes, hemotoxic
effects, and potential incidence of thyroid gland follicular adenoma, respectively [see Supplemental Material, Table S3 (http:// dx.
venom injected by vipers (rattlesnakes, copperheads and water moccasins) is spread more quickly throughout the victim's body by movement.
