  • From scorpion venom, kalitoxin blocks Kv1.3, a protein that plays a major role in inflammation. When Kv1.3 is blocked, it decreases the activity of another protein that plays a key role in stimulating bone-eating cells known as osteoclasts. May lead to success in alleviating the bone-ravaging effects of many other diseases. Good candidates include rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
