About this book

Volume 5 of the Handbook of Natural Toxins describes the latest developments in research on snake venom – including different types of venoms and toxins, actions, antidotes, and applications – and summarizes what is known to date on Gila monster and frog toxins. This collection also gives immediate access to essential data on all venom  and commercially available antivenins – with manufacturers’ addresses – in over 70 tables.

Presenting the work of 37 international experts – and providing over 2300 references to key literature, Volume 5 discusses all aspects of snake venom, including medical uses of toxin components, venom cloning for experimental research, clinical aspects of snakebite, antitoxin production, structure-function relationships, and much more.

Illustrated with over 200 drawings, photographs, and micrograps, this book serves as an excellent reference for toxicologists, applied biologists and biochemists, pharmacologists, veterinarians, scientists interested in the effects of snake venom on the human body, health department personnel, and graduate and medical school students in these disciplines.
