In Reply to: Question regarding venom posted by MikeB on June 12, 2002 at 14:02:26:

Wiener, S (1960). Active immunisation of man against the venom of the Australian Tiger Snake (Notechis scutatus). American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 9:284-92.

This paper tests the theory that people can develop an immunity to snake venom, and is based on a series of experiments carried out in 1958 on 46-year-old Charles Tanner in Melbourne, Australia (see link to an obituary below). Tiger snakes (Notechis scutatus), were used and the dosage gradually increased from 0.002mg to 25mg (enough to kill 30 men) over 13 months. Following the last injection Charles suffered nothing more than effects of a minor bee sting.
