In this contribution, an aqueous extract from rhizomes of Curcuma longa and an aqueous extract from the aerial parts of Kalanchoe brasiliensis were investigated for their properties against the local effects (edema, hemorrhage and necrosis) of Bothrops alternatus venom in mice. The experiment showed that the best results were obtained with Kalanchoe brasiliensis extract.
