Embodiments of natural and synthetic lethal toxin neutralizing factor and their utility as treatment for envenomation. Inhibition of the myotoxic activity of Bothrops asper myotoxin II in mice by immunization with its synthetic mer peptide The injected mice were divided into two groups. To date, according to these authors, no agents known to promote neurotrophic effects by acting via NGF receptor have been described. Recent research indicates that many of these peptides function by binding to and inhibiting selected protein targets with incredible specificity.

Small synthetic peptides can be delivered by oral route for treatment, as it is known that peptides having less than 2.

Synthetic LT inhibits the lethality of venoms and toxins even when administered 2 h later, therefore it has a potential as a universal treatment for intoxication by animal, plant, and bacterial toxins. The commonly held view that small synthetic peptides cannot mimic effects of large polypeptide ligands is now considerably out of date The fragment showing the most binding to anti-LTNF was sequenced. Trypsin-digested LTNF resolved into eight different fractions. The control mice received 0. Purification and characterization of an antihemorrhagic factor from the serum of the snake Vipera palestinae. Currently, the use of antivenoms is the only available treatment for envenomation caused by venomous animals namely, snakes, scorpions, spiders, ticks, and jellyfish.
