Climate change and health: Commentary on the new WHO guidelines

Frankfurt am Main, May 6, 2010. On May 4th 2010 the World Health Organization (WHO) has introduced a new internet plattform with photos and maps showing the spreading of more than 200 venomous snakes. These unconventional "criminal records" are introduced to replenish the contemporaneously published guidelines on the production and quality control of immunotherapy which can be used to medicate snake bites. The LOEWE Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre focuses on this topic as well. Dr. Ulrich Kuch, head of the project group Climate Change and Health, has been researching with venomous snakes for several years. He gives a personal assessment on the new guidelines.
