Which suggest that venom is an excellent source for the VEGF mRNA. But a further investigation should be done on the role of the VEGF in the envenoming process before including the VEGF motif the rationale therapy DNA plasmid. . Introduction: Snakes have from ancient time related to sciences associated with poison and death, such as toxicology plus as a symbol of medicine (Ramoutsaki 2000).

For example, according to Lutz (p 679), "Some sea urchins, especially those living on coral reefs, have hollow spines that contain a poison; the pacific Asthenoma has needle-sharp spines that can easily penetrate the skin, break off, and release a poison that is extremely painful and dangerous to humans." The flower urchin, Toxopneustes pileolus, (Figure 1) has poisonous pedicellariae which can potentially kill a human. Toxic material can also be contained in the layer of skin covering the spines, so injection of a spine itself is enough to cause intense pain (Endean, p256). As for treatment, Ryan (p170) recommends removing all spines from affected area with forceps, as long as this can be accomplished without breaking the spine and thus releasing more of the poison.
