Inhibition of snake venom using silver nanoaprticles: A biophysical and biochemical study

Snake envenomation is one of the most important public health problem in the worldwide, specifically in tropical and subtropical countries. It is a common occupational hazard mainly in rural peoples. There is significant morbidity and mortality reported worldwide. At present there is no reliable treatment established due various physiological/ biochemical problems. This preliminary investigation is being made to overcome these issues. We have shown inhibition of snake venom using metallic nanostructures. Various biophysical and biochemical principles have been used to understand the inhibitory action by the snake venom. So far this study focuses on interaction of silver nanoparticles with venom at fixed dimension of particles (52 nm). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first kind of report of inhibition of snake venom action by silver nanoparticles and other nanoparticles have not been used for similar studies.
