Neurotoxin Research

      Is anyone aware of any research into snake neurotoxin venoms regarding GBS? I am aware that snake venoms are being researched for potential solutions for parkinsons disease and alzheimers but has anyone looked at neurotoxins ref GBS? The effects of a snake neurotoxin are quite similar to the onset of GBS and this might tell us more about the mechanism of how GBS is started.

      Many thanks

      havent heard anything about this. I do know the Botox I was looking forward to in my “growing up” has been ruled out because it can cause trouble in GBS patients. I wonder if the other would be the same?? I definitely think more research is needed.
