A substance in the plasma and serum produced by the injection of the soluble products or toxins of such organisms as Bacillus diphtherias, Bacillus tetani, or by the toxins of snake venom or other animal poisons. It acts by combining with the haptophorous group of the molecules of the toxin, thus preventing the toxophorous or poisonous group from injuring the cells of the body. [Gr.]
