Scientists hope to find a snakebite cure. They are using technology used to find HIV anti-bodies. They want to use human anti-bodies in their cure. Snakebite is treated using anti-venom. This is made from the snake's venom. A professor said they are making the 'next generation' of snakebite cures. These will cure any snakebite.

Snakebites kill 140,000 people a year. About 400,000 people get terrible injuries and stress. About 250 types of snake have a dangerous venom. Every venom is very different. This makes finding a cure difficult. Someone said snakebite was, "the biggest public health crisis you have...never heard of".
