Can you imagine what those tests costs??????

Who paid?

"During clinical studies of Anascorp, which began in 2004 through the international collaboration led by researchers at the University of Arizona, the antivenom was available in more than 20 hospitals across Arizona and was used to treat more than 1,500 patients. All of these patients were enrolled in the study through the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center."

Was it a government sponsored study?

"The Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center is a public service funded by the state through the Arizona Department of Health Services. In the past two years, the state cut center funding by 50 percent. This significant reduction has made it difficult to maintain the high quality of service we have provided for more than 50 years. If you'd like to help, you may make on online donation through the University of Arizona Foundation."

Funding cut, no problem, I'm sure folks like Tele will pick up the shortfall through private donations.
