    Another promising step has been made toward developing a universal antidote for snakebite. The results of this pilot study revealed findings that support the team's idea that providing fast, accessible, and easy-to-administer treatment can increase survival rates in victims of venomous snakebite.[​IMG]

    That's a very misleading headline.

    This is potentially a huge development on saving lives
    Although in its present style it will only work on neurotoxic venom the simplicity makes it perfect for Asia where hospitals are few and far apart
    Any field clinic or local nurse could use this
    With cobras and kraits killing thousands a year just in India I will love this if it works
