  • New records and an updated checklist of snakes from Son La Province, Vietnam. [Journal Article]
    Biodivers Data J. 2020; 8:e52779.Pham AV, Ziegler T, Nguyen TQ
  • Son La Province is located in north-western Vietnam and the province contains a large area of 440,000 hectares of natural forest. A wide range of elevations and the complexity of landforms have given this province a great diversity of natural habitats and a high level of biodiversity potential. However, the snake fauna of Son La province is still poorly studied. Previous studies documented 56 spe…
  • [A real-world study of low molecular weight heparin sodium in the treatment of severe and critical bite by Trimeresurus stejnegeri]. [Journal Article]
    Zhonghua Wei Zhong Bing Ji Jiu Yi Xue. 2020 May; 32(5):601-604.Zheng Z, Yu Y, … Zeng Q
  • CONCLUSIONS: For the patients with severe and critical bite by Trimeresurus stejnegeri, on the basis of injection of antivenom serum, internal administration and external application of Jidesheng snake tablet, and wound incision and detoxification, early application of low molecular weight heparin sodium anticoagulation and other comprehensive treatment is helpful to improve limb swelling and inflammation, reduce blood transfusion, promote the recovery of coagulation function, and shorten the length of hospitalization.
  • Development of Nanobodies Against Hemorrhagic and Myotoxic Components of Bothrops atrox Snake Venom. [Journal Article]
    Front Immunol. 2020; 11:655.Bailon Calderon H, Yaniro Coronel VO, … Muyldermans S
  • Snake envenoming is a globally neglected public health problem. Antivenoms produced using animal hyperimmune plasma remain the standard therapy for snakebites. Although effective against systemic effects, conventional antivenoms have limited efficacy against local tissue damage. In addition, potential hypersensitivity reactions, high costs for animal maintenance, and difficulties in obtaining bat…
  • Bothrops atrox Snakebite: How a Bad Decision May Lead to a Chronic Disability: A Case Report. [Case Reports]
    Wilderness Environ Med. 2020 May 24 [Online ahead of print]Sachett JAG, Val FF, … Monteiro WM
  • Snakebites are a neglected and underestimated global health hazard. In the Brazilian Amazon, Bothrops snakebites are the most prevalent and may lead to severe complications. Here we describe a severe case of Bothrops atrox snakebite that, owing to delayed medical assistance, presented with renal and respiratory failure, compartment syndrome, and tissue necrosis. After several fasciotomy surgeries…
  • Cervical cancer and potential pharmacological treatment with snake venoms. [Review]
    Mol Biol Rep. 2020 Jun; 47(6):4709-4721.Montoya-Gómez A, Montealegre-Sánchez L, … Jiménez-Charris E
  • Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer worldwide in women. Apoptosis reactivation has become the main strategy for decreasing cancer proliferation. There is a need to extend the search for new drugs to implement more effective and less toxic strategies for cervical cancer treatment. Research has been carried out to find new drugs that have minimal side effects and that focus on the tumo…
  • National Estimates of Noncanine Bite and Sting Injuries Treated in US Hospital Emergency Departments, 2011-2015. [Journal Article]
    South Med J. 2020 May; 113(5):232-239.Hareza D, Langley R, … King K
  • CONCLUSIONS: Various sources of bite and sting injuries had an outsized effect on injury rates and identify potential areas of focus for education and prevention programs to reduce the burden of these injuries on health and healthcare costs. The study describes the diversity of animal exposures based on a national sample of EDs. Noncanine bite and sting injuries significantly affect public health and healthcare resources. Priorities can be focused on animal sources with the most impact on bite and sting injury rates, healthcare costs, and disease burden.
  • Delayed-onset sinus node dysfunction in a child victim of Russell's viper bite. [Journal Article]
    Asian Cardiovasc Thorac Ann. 2020 May; 28(4):213-215.Athapathu AS, Arunath V, … Mettananda S
  • Cardiac complications following envenomation by Russell's viper venom are uncommon. We describe a 14-year-old girl who developed delayed-onset sinus node dysfunction. She presented with mucosal bleeding, ptosis, and muscle weakness. Her 20-min whole blood clotting time and international normalized ratio were prolonged. The initial electrocardiogram showed sinus tachycardia. Her systemic manifesta…
  • Dataset of reptiles in fragmented forests at Tasik Kenyir, Hulu Terengganu, Malaysia. [Journal Article]

Data collection was conducted in January 2019 and sampling methods included drift fenced-pitfall traps and Visual Encounter Survey (VES). All animals were identified, measured snout to vent (SVL) and weighted…
  • Evaluation of systemic inflammatory response and lung injury induced by Crotalus durissus cascavella venom. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One. 2020; 15(2):e0224584.Azevedo E, Figueiredo RG, … Trindade SC
  • This study investigated the systemic inflammatory response and mechanism of pulmonary lesions induced by Crotalus durissus cascavella venom in murine in the state of Bahia. In order to investigate T helper Th1, Th2 and Th17 lymphocyte profiles, we measured interleukin (IL) -2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, IL-17, tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and interferon gamma (IFN-γ) levels in the peritoneal fluid and mac…
