Rock’n venom!

For nearly 30 years, British rock musician Steve Ludwin has been injecting himself with snake venom for “self-immunization”, despite medical experts’ warnings. He has been shooting venom into his skin from some of the world’s deadliest snakes. But what had looked like madness for years may revolutionize medicine. Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have worked with Steve Ludwin for four years, taking bone marrow and blood samples from him in order to develop the first human-derived anti-venom. If they manage to create this anti-venom, it could save thousands of lives.
