ThereforeI make a plea for further extensionof the roster system; this allows one to have relaxation, to have time off for meetingsand medicalreading, to have more family life. More important still, it allows the general practitioner to maintain his good generalhealth and to be of more value to his patients. In other words, it improves not only the welfare of the doctor but also the welfare of the patients. 
Venoms of Theridiidae, Genus Latrodectus
TLDR
He was the first to prove the relationship between the bite of this species and the syndrome of “latrodectism,” which had been confused up to that time with the hysteria form known as “tarantism” (see Part B). Expand
Black widow spider bites.
  • A. Rauber
  • Medicine
  • Journal of toxicology. Clinical toxicology
  • 1983
TLDR
The clinical picture is characterized by painful muscle spasm and hypertension, and the very young, the elderly or enfeebled, and those with cardiovascular disease are at greatest risk. Expand
Update of antivenom supply for redback spider bites in Japan
TLDR
Although the domestic production of RBS antivenom has started, great caution is required as the research group moves forward with this plan, and the second stage for large-scale antivenoms production is entered. Expand
THE SYDNEY FUNNEL–WEB SPIDER (ATRAX ROBUSTUS): I. COLLECTION OF VENOM AND ITS TOXICITY IN ANIMALS
  • S. Wiener
  • Medicine
  • The Medical journal of Australia
  • 1957
TLDR
It is proposed that captivity either has an adverseeffect on the toxin-producing properties of Atrax or that the toxin becomes Concentrated and dangerous only at certainspecific periods or under special conditions. Expand
Temporal Variation in Venom Yield of the Australian Funnel-Web Spider Atrax sutherlandi (Hexathelidae: Atracinae)
TLDR
This work investigates temporal variation in venom yield of the Australian funnel-web spider Atrax sutherlandi Gray 2010 (Hexathelidae: Atracinae) and highlights the potential effects of seasonality on spider venoms. Expand
Clinical and in vitro evidence for the efficacy of Australian red-back spider (Latrodectus hasselti) antivenom in the treatment of envenomation by a Cupboard spider (Steatoda grossa).
TLDR
Red-back spider antivenom (RBSAV) is likely to be effective in reversing symptoms of envenomation and should be considered in the treatment of patients with distressing or persisting symptoms. Expand
Arachnid toxinology in Australia: from clinical toxicology to potential applications.
TLDR
A historical viewpoint of the work of many toxinologists to isolate and characterise just some of the toxins produced by such a unique group of arachnids is provided and the potential applications of these novel peptides are examined. Expand
Venom regeneration in tarantula spiders—I. analysis of venom produced at different time intervals
TLDR
Regeneration of the analyzed venom constituents was not completely uniform: proteins, free amino acids and toxicity reached more or less the same levels as fresh venom, but hyaluronidase was resynthe-sized at a considerably slower rate. Expand
Twentieth century toxinology and antivenom development in Australia.
TLDR
Some of the milestones of Australian toxinology, and antivenom development in particular, during the 20th century are reviewed. Expand
Variation in venom yield and protein concentration of the centipedes Scolopendra polymorpha and Scolopendra subspinipes.
TLDR
This work investigated how size, specifically body length, influenced volume yield and protein concentration of electrically extracted venom in Scolopendra polymorpha and Scolobendra subspinipes and found the most important factor was bodylength, but yield was also positively associated with relative forcipule length and relative body mass.
