Coral snake is one of the deadliest snakes in the world having one of the most potent venoms. But because it lives in inhabited or sparsely populated areas the cases of Coral snake attacks are quite few in comparison with others.
But now scientists have discovered that this dangerous snake’s venom can be beneficial for patients. They claimed that the venom can be used to develop painkillers with no side effects.
Bryan Fran from University of Queensland Australia said that “This venom hits a particular type of sodium channel that is important to the treatment of pains in human”.
