BackgroundSnakebite is considered a neglected tropical disease by the World Health Organization. In Brazil, about 70% of the envenomation cases are caused by Bothrops snakes. Its venom may provoke hemorrhage, pain, necrosis, hemolysis, renal or cardiac failure and even death in victims. Since commercial antivenom does not efficiently neutralize the local toxic effects of venoms, natural products have been tested in order to provide alternative or complementary treatment to serum therapy… 
Pharmacological characterization of cnidarian extracts from the Caribbean Sea: evaluation of anti-snake venom and antitumor properties
TLDR
The cnidarian extracts analyzed showed relevant in vitro inhibitory potential over the activities induced by Bothrops venoms; these results may contribute to elucidate the possible mechanisms of interaction between cnodarian extracts and snake venoms.
The Bioflavonoids Rutin and Rutin Succinate Neutralize the Toxins of B. jararaca Venom and Inhibit its Lethality
TLDR
RS has anticoagulant properties and is a novel SVMP inhibitor, and completely abrogated the lethal activity of BjV, in the same degree as o-phe.
Cocos nucifera Oil Decreases Edema and Mechanical Hypernociception Induced by Bothrops jararacussu Venom in Mice
TLDR
Virgin coconut oil exerted an anti-inflammatory effect on paw injury that was induced by B. jararacussu venom in mice, most likely by inhibiting leukocyte migration and reducing the action of the same inflammatory agents.
ASPECTOS TAXONÔMICOS DA BIOPROSPECÇÃO NO BRASIL: TENDÊNCIA CIENTÍFICA
TLDR
The data indicate a promising scenario in the country's bioprospecting; however, insects, sponges and amphibians had a low number of published studies, making it impossible to perform a temporal analysis.
In vitro bioactivity and phytochemical analysis of two marine macro-algae
TLDR
The present study has been undertaken to compare the in vitro biological activity of solvent extracts of S. wightii and G. verrucosa with respect to antibiotic resistant microorganisms in aquaculture.
Marine Natural Products with Bioactivity Against Neglected Tropical Diseases
TLDR
A review of secondary metabolites isolated from marine sources that have demonstrated activity against neglected tropical diseases and are promising candidates for drug development discusses 114 marine derived metabolites active against the WHO's 2017 list of 20 NTDs.
Anti-HIV-1 activity in human primary cells and Anti-HIV-1 RT inhibitory activity of extracts from the red seaweed Acanthophora spicifera
TLDR
The EtOAc extract from A. spicifera showed to be an efficient HIV antiviral due to its phenolic compounds, as evaluated by nuclear magnetic resonance.

Inhibitory effect of the red seaweed Plocamium brasiliense against the toxic effects of Lachesis muta snake venom
TLDR
Seaweeds may be a promising source of natural inhibitors of the toxic effects caused by snakebite by L. muta venom, and they may be used to develop new strategies for antivenom treatment.
Antiophidian properties of plant extracts against Lachesis muta venom
TLDR
Evaluating the antiophidian properties of 12 Brazilian plant extracts against the hemolytic, coagulant, hemorrhagic and proteolytic effects of Lachesis muta venom revealed that most of these aqueous products were capable of inhibiting those activities at different levels, except for Sapindus saponaria extract.
Appraisal of Antiophidic Potential of Marine Sponges against Bothrops jararaca and Lachesis muta Venom
TLDR
It is concluded that Brazilian sponges may be a useful aid in the treatment of snakebites caused by L. muta and B. jararaca and therefore have potential for the discovery of molecules with antiophidian properties.
Medicinal plants with inhibitory properties against snake venoms.
TLDR
A review of plants showing neutralizing properties against snake venoms which were assayed in research laboratories, correlating them with ethnopharmacological studies, and inhibition of the main pharmacological, toxic and enzymatic activities ofSnake venoms and isolated toxins are presented.
Inhibitory effect of a Brazilian marine brown alga Spatoglossum schröederi on biological activities of Lachesis muta snake venom
TLDR
Results show that the polarity of the solvent used to prepare the extracts of S. schroederi algae influenced the potency of the inhibitory effect of the biological activities induced by L. muta venom, and may be a promising source of natural inhibitors of the enzymes involved in biological activities of L. Muta venom.
Inhibitory Effect of the Plant Clusia fluminensis against Biological Activities of Bothrops jararaca Snake Venom
TLDR
The extracts of different organs of C. fluminensis inhibited proteolysis and hemolysis induced by B. jararaca venom, but with different potencies, and only the stems prevented blood clotting.
Evaluation of Marine Brown Algae and Sponges from Brazil as Anticoagulant and Antiplatelet Products
TLDR
Evaluated extracts of two extracts of brown algae and ten marine sponges from Brazil revealed that most of the extracts were capable of inhibiting platelet aggregation and clotting measured by plasma recalcification tests, prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time, and fibrinogenolytic activity.
Intraspecific Variation of Biological Activities in Venoms from Wild and Captive Bothrops jararaca
TLDR
To determine individual variation in Bothrops jararaca venom in the Botucatu region, Sao Paulo State, Brazil, by means of enzymatic, biochemical, and pharmacological characterization, in vitro tests and biological assays, data illustrate the intra- and interspecific complexity that occurs in snake venoms.
