Doctors to treat deafness with the use of Snake poison

Doctors at the University of Gottingen, Germany are set to start a research on patients, where they will receive injections of Ancrod, a drug  made from the the venom of the Malayan Pit Viper (snake).

According to Daily Mail, the drug is prescribed to people who suffer from sudden loss of hearing.

In some cases it (loss of hearing) may occur over night while others may hear a loud pop before their hearing disappears.

Such conditions occur when a part of the inner ear doesn’t get enough oxygen, or when it’s been infected by virus or a blood vessel defect.

The drug is supposed to work by thinning the blood and boosting circulation.
It can also be used in the case of stroke.
