Coral Snake Antivenom Research

Because Wyeth will no longer produce US coral snake antivenom after this year, a substitute is necessary, and researcher Dr. Elda Sanchez has been working under a grant to find one. She now believes that a Mexico-produced antivenom, created for a different species, will work for the Texas coral snake. [Doesn't note if it works for the eastern coral snake, though.] (News source.)
