Por otra parte, existen reportes de la presencia de factores presentes en los venenos capaces de causar hemolisis intravascular in vivo, como en el veneno de Trimeresurus flavoviridis, que induce hemolisis por tres mecanismos distintos: lipolisis directa a traves de la actividad [PLA.sub.2], activacion del sistema del complemento, e inhibicion de inhibidores de lisis de membrana que impiden el acoplamiento de la convertasa C3 bloqueando asi la formacion del complejo que ataca a la membrana de eritrocitos (21).
