Anti-Scorpion Venom

Generic Name:

Anti-Scorpion Venom

Description:

Poisoning from a scorpion sting can have serious cardiovascular effects. Scorpion Antidote is a special treatment for scorpion stings. There is little evidence of the benefits and efficacy of scorpion antitoxin compared to commonly used vasodilators such as prazosin. We evaluated the efficacy of prazosin in combination with scorpion antitoxin versus prazosin alone in patients with dysautonomia due to scorpion stings.

Scorpion antidote is a specific antidote that can neutralize circulating toxins when administered immediately after being stung.

Polyvalent Anti-Scorpion Venom Serum is made from purified plasma of healthy horses hyperimmunized against the most dangerous scorpion venoms listed below. Antitoxin is purified by pepsin digestion, controlled heating and precipitation with caprylic acid, followed by sterilization.

Composition:

Each 1 ml serum contains antibodies that neutralize the following venoms :
