There are many pathways autoxidation of glucose, polyol pathway, protein glycation, formation of advanced glycation products… by which hyperglycemia can increase the ROS production.

Obtained results suggest that the inhibition of voltage-gated sodium channels before venom injection seems to induce a decrease androctonus australis hector blood glucose in hyperglycemic model and androctonus australis hector prevent some disturbances induced by hyperglycemia.

Fab was more effective than F ab' 2 for preventing early symptoms of envenomation, whatever their route of administration. Intraperitoneal injection of F ab' 2 and Androctonus australis hector was similar for the prevention of the delayed symptoms, even after a late administration.

Fab was more effective than F ab' 2 in the inhibition of airway resistance, independent of the route and time of administration. Androctonus australis Linnaeus, Cardiac dysfunctioning androctonus australis hector pulmonary edema following scorpion envenomation.
