According to a Nursing Spectrum article, venom from the Malayan Viper can help stroke victims. The article says that treating strokes immediately is very important. But, this new drug called Viprinex can help increase the “window of opportunity”.

Their website has a nice little video that shows how the vipers are milked. I don’t know if I could do that job! Judging by how many mistakes I make a work and how deadly a mistake would be in that line of work, I wouldn’t last long!
