>> it worked. the results were so exciting that matt gave a talk on it at a medical convention. the cameras were flash flashing as he revealed the results. >> you are the first to see it. >> one doctor was in the audience and joined in on the collaboration. they raised money for further research in india where snake bites are an extreme problem. dr. samuel was at an indian hospital when the nasal spray was tried for the first time on a snake bite victim and matt got the news a short time later. >> i got an e-mail that said we had a complete reversal. we have done it. i was particularly in tears. >> that patient in india is now fully recovered. the nasal spray is in the experimental stage and won't work on every type of snake bite, but it could be the start of a safe, cheap and easy way to save tens of thousands of lives. eric thomas, abc7 news. part of start wars history may vanish from the face of the earth. the set used to portray
