If you ever have the misfortune to be bitten by a pit viper, stung by a cone snail, or come too close to the jaws of a Gila monster, at best, you’ll be in a lot of pain. At worst, it might be the last thing you do.
These are some of the world’s most venomous creatures. Their potent toxins help them to survive, and they could also be responsible for saving your life one day.
Venomics – the scientific analysis of venom – offers some groundbreaking solutions to health problems from heart disease to diabetes, to managing chronic pain.
In fact, there are already six drugs approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States that are derived from venom.
But with 15% of the world’s animals producing venom of some kind, we have really only just begun to scratch the surface of their potential contribution to medicine.
