Anti-bothropic complex (ABC) was isolated from the serum of the South American opossum (Didelphis albiventris) by single-step affinity chromatography using a Sepharose-immobilized metalloprotease (BaP1) from Bothrops asper as the binding protein. Biochemical characterization of ABC showed the presence of two glycosylated subunits of 43 and 45 kDa,(More)
UNLABELLED Extracorporeal shock wave treatment (ESWT) increases perfusion in ischaemic tissues, stimulates growth factors, decreases inflammation and accelerates wound healing. It is a safe technique classically used in urology and orthopaedic surgery with success, but there is still limited literature regarding its use in the management of burns. PURPOSE(More)
