A team of researchers concluded that tarantula venom could be used as an alternative to opioid-based painkillers among patients seeking chronic pain relief.
According to the study, which was published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, researchers from the University of “Queensland” Australian designed a new small protein for the poison of “tarantulas” that can relieve severe pain without addiction.
The researchers said that the current opioid crisis around the world means the urgent need for urgent alternatives to morphine drugs, such as “fentanyl” and “oxycodone”.
“Although opiates are effective in producing painkillers, they come with unwanted side effects, such as nausea, constipation and the risk of addiction, which puts a heavy burden on society,” said researcher Christina Schroeder from the University of Queensland.
“Our study found that a small protein in the venom of tarantulas binds to pain receptors in the body, and by using a three-dimensional approach in designing our drugs that includes the mini protein, its receptor and the surrounding membrane of spider venom, we altered this mini protein to increase the effectiveness and specificity of specific pain receptors,” she added. This ensures that only the right amount of microparticle is attached to the receptor and the cell membrane surrounding the pain receptors.
The researchers pointed out that “the mini-protein was tested in mouse models and proved that it works effectively,” saying, “Our results can lead to an alternative method of treating pain without side effects and reduce the dependence of many individuals on opioids for pain relief.”
Australian scientists have discovered that dangerous spider venom may help treat stroke patients.
Scientists specializing in biochemistry found that this toxin gave better chances for survival.
Scientists say that the venom of the web spider, a killer spider found on the Australian island of Friars, contains a molecule that helps stop the effect of a stroke on the brain.
According to university professor Glenn King, from the University of Queensland, the new drug can be used by paramedics easily within minutes to protect the brain.
More than 40,000 species of spiders have been found to be a real danger to humans.
So we have compiled a list of the 10 most dangerous spiders around the world.
And for starters, Most of them are too small to be able to puncture the skin, and the vast majority are not at least aggressive.
Even those rare spiders have bites that cause injuries worse than any bite, and reports indicate that during the 20th century, spiders were responsible for the death of 100 individuals worldwide.
Fear of spiders or arachnophobia affects about 5% of the population, including various celebrities such as Justin Timberlake and J.K. Rowling, and there are many reports that say that these small creatures cause phobias and fear for most individuals, although these creatures are small in size but they have what Nearly eight legs have been reserved specifically to terrorize humans and it is true that these spiders, by definition, possess a pair of fangs through which they inject venom.
Here is a list of the most dangerous spiders around the world.
Images are compiled in one picture as well.
The hobo spider
The actual danger to humans from the hobo spider. It has been shown to have dangerous animal bites that were carried out in the laboratory, and there are several alleged cases of spider bites causing an open wound and this may take several weeks to heal.
There are two reasons why the hobo spider that made it on this list is that it is aggressive and quite common, which increases the chances of actual bites occurring.
In fact, the hobo spider is referred to as the “hobo spider’s web” and this spider is common to find in all parts of Europe.

Spider venom is found in the yellow sac and is cytotoxic, which means that it leads to cell breakdown and its bites lead to strong pain followed by redness and swelling and can develop into an ulcer, although it is less severe, the resulting wound is likely to heal much faster.
Fringed Ornamental Tarantula
It is a spider with many fringes decorated on its back.
This spider has a shape, unlike other spiders, as it is filled with large hairs, which are terrifying when seeing individuals. And it jumps on individuals to sting because it has strong fangs that attack prey, similar to pincers.
The spider has a terrifying behavior and bad bites, and it is mentioned that one bite of it causes excruciating pain, severe muscle cramping in some cases, cramps and chest pain. Although there are no confirmed cases of death due to the fringed Tarantula spider, it carries a strong poison.
This time, you get to know a really dangerous spider, there are about 12 species, and it has a soft fur. Among the rumors that Missulena spider could eat mice.
