Spitting cobras: Experimental assay employing the model of chicken embryo and the chick chorioallantoic membrane for imaging and evaluation of effects of venom from African and Asian species (Naja ashei, Naja nigricollis, Naja siamensis, Naja sumatrana).
A detailed insight into microscopic level processes in venom-induced changes observed on the chicken embryos and on the vascular network in their chorioallantoic membrane is disclosed.

Understanding species’ anatomical differences is useful for interpreting toxicological and pathological responses to the eye and is important for human risk assessment of these important new therapies for ocular diseases.
Adverse ocular drug reactions recently identified by the National Registry of Drug-Induced Ocular Side Effects.
Bisphosphonates are associated with ocular inflammation, including the first reports of drug-related scleritis and topiramate is shown to cause angle-closure glaucoma.
How the ear's works work
Biophysical studies suggest that mechanical forces control the opening and closing of transduction channels by acting through elastic components in each hair cell's mechanoreceptive hair bundle.
