Abstract:

Many active principles produced by insects, animals, plants and microorganisms have been used as new drugs to treat diseases. Among the insects and animals that produce pharmacologically active molecules capable of interfering in human cellular physiology, the highlights are venomous arthropods, such as, bees, wasps, ants and caterpillars. The substances found in the venom of these insects present great potential as anti-parasitic agents. In this review, we present the main results of years of research involving the active compounds of insects venoms that have therapeutic activity.
