 I came across of information regarding treatment of ingested ciguatoxin.It described intravenous feed of
 D-manittol in 100mM concentration which reversed the symptoms of poisoning.As this is the only substance
 causing rapid symptom reversal, it is also a diagnositic test for the attending doctor.I thought this may be
 of interest to You as well.
