Specific anti-digoxin Fab fragments: an available antidote for proscillaridin and scilliroside poisoning?


PMID 2375888

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the capacity of specific anti-digoxin Fab fragments to bind to and neutralize scilliroside and proscillaridin in acute poisoning. Apparent affinity constants were determined with values of 2.6 10(8)M-1 for scilliroside and 3.8 10(7)M-1 for proscillaridin. These results are in accordance with a possible in-vivo neutralization of these toxins.
