what is an antidote??
Asked by n jain | 21st Mar, 2011, 12:00: AM
Antidote is a medicine or other remedy for counteracting the effects of poison, disease, etc.
The antidotes for some particular toxins are manufactured by injecting the toxin into an animal in small doses and extracting the resulting antibodies from the host animals' blood. This results in an antivenom that can be used to counteract poison produced by certain species of snakes, spiders, and other venomous animals.
We hope that clarifies your query.
