Public Lecture - Snakebite: A Very Neglected Disease
Mark O’Shea, Professor of Herpetology
Tuesday 18 June 2019, 3 - 4pm
Millennium City Building, MC001, City Campus
This one-hour public lecture will raise awareness about the scourge of snakebite. A snakebite should be a survivable event, provided the victim reaches hospital in time and receives the appropriate treatment. But snakebite victims often delay attending hospital, visiting traditional healers, or indulging in worthless, even dangerous traditional snakebite first aid practices. Around the world up to 138,000 people die of snakebite each year, mostly in developing countries, and 400,000 snakebite survivors are permanently disabled, or become amputees, due to the effects of the powerful venoms.
The world now faces an Antivenom Crisis, as major Western drug companies pull out of the antivenom production. But hope is in sight, the World Health Organization has finally recognised snakebite as a 'Neglected Tropical Disease', a status that might encourage more research into its treatment and into antivenom production.
This lecture series is open to the general public, staff and students at the University of Wolverhampton. Due to demand, booking is essential.
