Negative results are frequent using anti-TNFα antibodies in sepsis models and clinical trials. Different prophylactic doses of anti-TNFα F(ab')2 antibody fragments were compared for the prevention of death by sepsis induced by cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) in mice. High (10 mg/kg) and very low (0.01 and 0.1 mg/kg) concentrations of anti-TNFα antibody(More)
The toxic, biochemical, and immunological characteristics of L. boneti and L. reclusa venoms and its neutralization by anti-L. boneti and anti-L. reclusa antivenoms were studied. The electrophoretic profile showed very similar patterns and the toxic activities were very close. Immunological studies showed cross-reactivity among L. boneti and L. reclusa(More)
The characterization of the toxic activities of snake venoms is necessary to understand the physiopathology of the envenomation and to test the potency of the antivenoms used to treat this pathology. Because of the lack of data on the toxic activities of venoms from Mexican snakes of medical importance, we studied the venoms from Bothrops asper, Athropoides(More)
Micrurus snakes (coral snakes) may produce severe envenomation that can lead to death by peripheral respiratory paralysis. Only few laboratories produce specific antivenoms, and despite the cross-reactivity found in some Micrurus species venoms, the treatment is not always effective. To test two therapeutic antivenoms against the venom of four species of(More)
