A jab that protects against poisonous spider venom may become a reality one day, early research suggests.

Brazilian scientists created a synthetic protein that protected rabbits from the effects of spider poison in experiments.

A new generation of anti-venom vaccines could save thousands of lives a year, researchers report in Vaccine journal.

The spider tested, belonging to the genus Loxosceles, injures almost 7,000 people a year in Brazil alone.

That would be so wonderful.  Hard to believe I'm the first one to reply to this.  Seems a lot more important to me than whether Miley Cyrus saw a ghost or a ghost peeped on her while she was showering, but then I'm an old lady, lol.
