The extract of Marsypianthes chamaedrys, a plant used against snakebites, in the present study was shown to inhibit fibrinoclotting induced by several Brazilian snake venoms or thrombin. These data indicate that this extract affected thrombin-like enzymes. In this first report we determine some features of the components present in the extract regarding the antifibrinoclotting action. Our results show that active components responsible for those effects are thermo-resistant and are concentrated… CONTINUE READING
