I need some help here with a quite vexing query into the nature of the
antivenom used to treat black widow spider bites.  I have been informed
that one may only recieve this antivenom once in one's life, and I was
wondering if any toxicologists could tell me if this is in fact true,
and if so, why the antivenom can only be administered once.  Please
email me with any help you can give.  Thanx!
