Russell viper venom

Rus·sell vi·per ven·om

(rŭs'ĕl),
a venom derived from the Russell viper (Vipera russelli), which acts as an intrinsic thromboplastin; used in the laboratory evaluation of deficiencies of factor X or topically to arrest local hemorrhage in hemophilia.

[Patrick Russell, Irish physician who worked in India, 1727–1805]
The toxin from Russell's viper. It is used to investigate disorders of blood coagulation, such as are present in antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, factor V Leiden deficiency, and others. Synonym: stypven.
