Abstract:
Antivenoms, produced by immunising animals with appropriate snake venom or venoms, are the only available specific treatment for snake envenomation. In this thesis monospecific ovine antivenoms were raised against venom fron the South American rattlesnake, Crotalus durissus terrificus, using a novel immunisation procedure (in respect of antivenon production) whereby small doses of venom were given at monthly intervals.
