Snake antivenom, also known as snake venom antiserum and antivenom immunoglobulin is a medication made up of antibodies used to treat snake bites by venomous snakes. It is a type of antivenom.
It is a biological product that typically consists of venom neutralizing antibodies derived from a host animal, such as a horse or sheep. The host animal is hyper-immunized to one or more snake venom’s, a process which creates an immunological response that produces large numbers of neutralizing antibodies against various components (toxins) of the venom. The antibodies are then collected from the host animal, and further processed into snake antivenom for the treatment of envenomation.
They are on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a basic health system.
