Serum containing specific poison-neutralizing antibodies.
A substance that neutralizes a toxin (or poison).
An antibody against an exotoxin, usually derived from horse serum.
An antitoxin is an antibody with the ability to neutralize a specific toxin. Antitoxins are produced by certain animals, plants, and bacteria. Although they are most effective in neutralizing toxins, they can kill bacteria and other microorganisms.
