Du venin au médicament : exemple du Bothrops jararaca et du Captopril

Abstract : Captopril, the ambassador of Converting Enzyme Inhibitors, drugs more than used today in the treatment of high blood pressure has a very singular history. Indeed it is from a snake venom that its synthesis was possible. It is the Bothrops jararaca, one of the deadliest snakes in South America, which, after numerous analyzes of its venom, allowed the synthesis of this remedy. But how from a poison that causes death in a few hours, could a drug be synthesized? That’s the whole story of this thesis.
