Moreover, here for the first time, a complete and long lasting protection from the lethal effect induced by a toxic type 2 ribosome-inactivating protein has been obtained by combining the caspase inhibitor Z-VAD, to either the hydrogen peroxide scavenger catalase or the necroptotic inhibitor necrostatin-1.
