New Treatment for Fatal Snake Bites

Venomous snakes like cobras and kraits are killing hundreds of thousands of people throughout the developing world every year, making snakebites a neglected epidemic in countries like India.

Now a Bay Area doctor has a plan to save millions of people like them who will surely get bitten in the future.
