We are committed to developing and bringing to market the world's first universal antivenom.
Conventional antivenom is produced by injecting the venom of one or more species of snake into horses and purifying their antibodies. This results in a product with:
Low Potency- Only a small fraction of the antibodies are specific to toxins
Side Effects- Non-human antibodies can produce anaphylaxis, serum sickness, and even death
High cost- Inefficient production methods are prohibitively expensive
Here at Venomyx we believe it's time for a change.
We are bringing the antivenom industry into the 21st century with the ultimate goal of saving lives by making treatment safe, effective, and available for patients when they need it.
