Venoms from snakes of the genus Bothrops cause pronounced local effects in the victims. These alterations result not only from the direct toxic action of venom components, but also from the prominent inflammatory reaction associated with these envenomations. In this study we investigated the ability of Bothrops asper (BaV) and Bothrops jararaca (BjV) venoms to induce cellular influx and microbicidal functions in leukocytes. BaV and BjV (5 microg/animal) caused a long lasting infiltration of… CONTINUE READING
