Why Cone snail ?
Rare and extremely powerful, cone snail venom is one of the most promising reservoir of bioactive compounds.
Conotoxin refers to toxins that can be found by hundreds in each singular marine cone snail venom.
Each of these single molecules are active on a specific biological target and dozens of them are studied by scientists for medical applications. Each venom is made up of several hundred different toxins called conotoxins, each of them being active on a biological target.
Some conotoxins are very promising since they inhibit the transmission of the pain messages in a very effective way without causing the side effects generated by more conventional painkillers.
