Scorpion stings are a common event that occurs in tropical and subtropical areas of the world, being a public health problem in certain countries. In most places, medical treatment relays on antivenoms obtained from the sera of hyper-immunized horses, however some efforts are being made to prepare specific antibodies of human origin, using phage display methodology. This communication describes the strategy followed for obtaining a protective human single chain antibody (scFv) capable of… CONTINUE READING
