Drugs used for their actions on skeletal muscle. Included are agents that act directly on skeletal muscle, those that alter neuromuscular transmission (NEUROMUSCULAR BLOCKING AGENTS), and drugs that act centrally as skeletal muscle relaxants (MUSCLE RELAXANTS, CENTRAL). Drugs used in the treatment of movement disorders are ANTI-DYSKINESIA AGENTS.
Toxic proteins produced from the species CLOSTRIDIUM BOTULINUM. The toxins are synthesized as a single peptide chain which is processed into a mature protein consisting of a heavy chain and light chain joined via a disulfide bond. The botulinum toxin light chain is a zinc-dependent protease which is released from the heavy chain upon ENDOCYTOSIS into PRESYNAPTIC NERVE ENDINGS. Once inside the cell the botulinum toxin light chain cleaves specific SNARE proteins which are essential for secretion of ACETYLCHOLINE by SYNAPTIC VESICLES. This inhibition of acetylcholine release results in muscular PARALYSIS.
A form of muscle hypertonia associated with upper MOTOR NEURON DISEASE. Resistance to passive stretch of a spastic muscle results in minimal initial resistance (a "free interval") followed by an incremental increase in muscle tone. Tone increases in proportion to the velocity of stretch. Spasticity is usually accompanied by HYPERREFLEXIA and variable degrees of MUSCLE WEAKNESS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p54)
Drugs used in the treatment of movement disorders. Most of these act centrally on dopaminergic or cholinergic systems. Among the most important clinically are those used for the treatment of Parkinson disease (ANTIPARKINSON AGENTS) and those for the tardive dyskinesias.
A species of anaerobic, gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria in the family Clostridiaceae that produces proteins with characteristic neurotoxicity. It is the etiologic agent of BOTULISM in humans, wild fowl, HORSES; and CATTLE.

An ENTEROTOXIN from VIBRIO CHOLERAE. It consists of two major protomers, the heavy (H) or A subunit and the B protomer which consists of 5 light (L) or B subunits. The catalytic A subunit is proteolytically cleaved into fragments A1 and A2. The A1 fragment is a MONO(ADP-RIBOSE) TRANSFERASE. The B protomer binds cholera toxin to intestinal epithelial cells, and facilitates the uptake of the A1 fragment. The A1 catalyzed transfer of ADP-RIBOSE to the alpha subunits of heterotrimeric G PROTEINS activates the production of CYCLIC AMP. Increased levels of cyclic AMP are thought to modulate release of fluid and electrolytes from intestinal crypt cells.

Functional repair of motor endplates after botulinum neurotoxin type A poisoning: biphasic switch of synaptic activity between nerve sprouts and their parent terminals. (1/694)

Blockade of acetylcholine release by botulinum neurotoxin type A at the neuromuscular junction induces the formation of an extensive network of nerve-terminal sprouts. By repeated in vivo imaging of N-(3-triethyl ammonium propyl)-4-(4-(dibutylamino)styryl) pyridinium dibromide uptake into identified nerve endings of the mouse sternomastoid muscle after a single intramuscular injection of the toxin, inhibition of stimulated uptake of the dye at the terminals was detected within a few days, together with an increase in staining of the newly formed sprouts. After 28 days, when nerve stimulation again elicited muscle contraction, regulated vesicle recycling occurred only in the sprouts [shown to contain certain soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor attachment proteins (SNAREs) and to abut acetylcholine receptors] and not at the parent terminals. Therefore, only these sprouts could be responsible for nerve-muscle transmission at this time. However, a second, distinct phase of the rehabilitation process followed with a return of vesicle turnover to the original terminals, accompanied by an elimination of the by then superfluous sprouts. This extension and later removal of "functional" sprouts indicate their fundamental importance in the repair of paralyzed endplates, a finding with ramifications for the vital process of nerve regeneration.  (+info)

Comparison of mouse bioassay and immunoprecipitation assay for botulinum toxin antibodies. (2/694)

OBJECTIVE: To compare a recently developed immunoprecipitation assay (IPA) to the mouse protection bioassay (MPB), currently considered the "gold standard", for detecting antibodies against botulinum toxin A (BTX-A) and to correlate these assay results with clinical responses to BTX-A injections. METHODS: MPB and IPA assays were performed on serum samples from 83 patients (38 non-responders, 45 responders) who received BTX-A injections. Six non-responders had serum tested on two separate occasions. Some patients also received a "test" injection into either the right eyebrow (n=29) or right frontalis (n=19). RESULTS: All patients antibody positive (Ab+) by MPB were also Ab+ by IPA, whereas an additional 19 patients (17 with reduced or no clinical response) who were MPB Ab- were Ab+, with low titres, by IPA. Two of these 19 patients (non-responders) were initially MPB Ab- but later became MPB Ab+. Similar to previous studies, the sensitivity for the MPB was low; 50% for clinical, 38% for eyebrow, and 30% for frontalis responses whereas the IPA sensitivity was much higher at 84% for clinical (p<0.001), 77% for eyebrow (p=0.111, NS) and 90% for frontalis responses (p<0.02). The IPA specificity was 89% for clinical, 81% for eyebrow, and 89% for frontalis responses, whereas the MPB specificity was 100% for all three response types, which were all non-significant differences. CONCLUSIONS: Both assays had high specificity although the sensitivity of the IPA was higher than the MPB. In addition, the IPA seems to display positivity earlier than the MPB, and as such, it may prognosticate future non-responsiveness. Eyebrow and frontalis "test" injections correlated well with clinical and immunological results and are useful in the assessment of BTX non-responders.  (+info)

Characterization of a vertebrate neuromuscular junction that demonstrates selective resistance to botulinum toxin. (3/694)

Botulinum toxin blocks transmitter release by proceeding through a series of four steps: binding to cell surface receptors, penetration of the cell membrane by receptor-mediated endocytosis, penetration of the endosome membrane by pH-induced translocation, and intracellular proteolysis of substrates that govern exocytosis. Each of these steps is essential for toxin action on intact cells. Therefore, alterations in cell structure or cell function that impede any of these steps should confer resistance to toxin. In the present study, screening for susceptibility to four serotypes of botulinum toxin revealed that the cutaneous-pectoris nerve-muscle preparation of Rana pipiens is resistant to type B botulinum toxin. Resistance was demonstrated both by electrophysiologic techniques and by dye-staining techniques. In addition, resistance to serotype B was demonstrated at toxin concentrations that were 2 orders of magnitude higher than those associated with blockade produced by other serotypes. In experiments on broken cell preparations, type B toxin cleaved synaptobrevin from frog brain synaptosomes. However, the toxin did not bind to frog nerve membranes. These findings suggest that resistance is due to an absence of cell surface receptors for botulinum toxin type B. The fact that cutaneous-pectoris preparations were sensitive to other botulinum toxin serotypes (A, C, and D), as well as other neuromuscular blocking agents (alpha-latrotoxin, beta-bungarotoxin), indicates that botulinum toxin type B receptors are distinct.  (+info)

A comparison of injections of botulinum toxin and topical nitroglycerin ointment for the treatment of chronic anal fissure. (4/694)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Lateral internal sphincterotomy, the most common treatment for chronic anal fissure, may cause permanent injury to the anal sphincter, which can lead to fecal incontinence. We compared two nonsurgical treatments that avert the risk of fecal incontinence. We randomly assigned 50 adults with symptomatic chronic posterior anal fissures to receive treatment with either a total of 20 U of botulinum toxin injected into the internal anal sphincter on each side of the anterior midline or 0.2 percent nitroglycerin ointment applied twice daily for six weeks. RESULTS: After two months, the fissures were healed in 24 of the 25 patients (96 percent) in the botulinum-toxin group and in 15 of the 25 (60 percent) in the nitroglycerin group (P=0.005). No patient in either group had fecal incontinence. At some time during treatment, five patients in the nitroglycerin group had transient, moderate-to-severe headaches that were related to treatment. None of the patients in the botulinum-toxin group reported adverse effects. Ten patients who did not have a response to the assigned treatment - 1 in the botulinum-toxin group and 9 in the nitroglycerin group - crossed over to the other treatment; the fissures subsequently healed in all 10 patients. There were no relapses during an average of about 15 months of follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: Although treatment with either topical nitroglycerin or botulinum toxin is effective as an alternative to surgery for patients with chronic anal fissure, botulinum toxin is the more effective nonsurgical treatment.  (+info)

Persistence of botulinum neurotoxin action in cultured spinal cord cells. (5/694)

Primary dissociated fetal mouse spinal cord cultures were used to study the mechanisms underlying the differences in persistence of botulinum neurotoxin A (BoNT/A) and botulinum neurotoxin/E (BoNT/E) activities. Spinal cord cultures were exposed to BoNT/A (0.4 pM) for 2-3 days, which converted approximately half of the SNAP-25 to an altered form lacking the final nine C-terminal residues. The distribution of toxin-damaged to control SNAP-25 remained relatively unchanged for up to 80 days thereafter. Application of a high concentration of BoNT/E (250 pM) either 25 or 60 days following initial intoxication with BoNT/A converted both normal and BoNT/A-truncated SNAP-25 into a single population lacking the final 26 C-terminal residues. Excess BoNT/E was removed by washout, and recovery of intact SNAP-25 was monitored by Western blot analysis. The BoNT/E-truncated species gradually diminished during the ensuing 18 days, accompanied by the reappearance of both normal and BoNT/A-truncated SNAP-25. Return of BoNT/A-truncated SNAP-25 was observed in spite of the absence of BoNT/A in the culture medium during all but the first 3 days of exposure. These results indicate that proteolytic activity associated with the BoNT/A light chain persists inside cells for > 11 weeks, while recovery from BoNT/E is complete in < 3 weeks. This longer duration of enzymatic activity appears to account for the persistence of serotype A action.  (+info)

Pure botulinum neurotoxin is absorbed from the stomach and small intestine and produces peripheral neuromuscular blockade. (6/694)

Clostridium botulinum serotype A produces a neurotoxin composed of a 100-kDa heavy chain and a 50-kDa light chain linked by a disulfide bond. This neurotoxin is part of a ca. 900-kDa complex, formed by noncovalent association with a single nontoxin, nonhemagglutinin subunit and a family of hemagglutinating proteins. Previous work has suggested, although never conclusively demonstrated, that neurotoxin alone cannot survive passage through the stomach and/or cannot be absorbed from the gut without the involvement of auxiliary proteins in the complex. Therefore, this study compared the relative absorption and toxicity of three preparations of neurotoxin in an in vivo mouse model. Equimolar amounts of serotype A complex with hemagglutinins, complex without hemagglutinins, and purified neurotoxin were surgically introduced into the stomach or into the small intestine. In some experiments, movement of neurotoxin from the site of administration was restricted by ligation of the pylorus. Comparison of relative toxicities demonstrated that at adequate doses, complex with hemagglutinins, complex without hemagglutinins, and pure neurotoxin can be absorbed from the stomach. The potency of neurotoxin in complex was greater than that of pure neurotoxin, but the magnitude of this difference diminished as the dosage of neurotoxin increased. Qualitatively similar results were obtained when complex with hemagglutinins, complex without hemagglutinins, and pure neurotoxin were placed directly into the intestine. This work establishes that pure botulinum neurotoxin serotype A is toxic when administered orally. This means that pure neurotoxin does not require hemagglutinins or other auxiliary proteins for absorption from the gastrointestinal system into the general circulation.  (+info)

Activation of store-operated Ca2+ current in Xenopus oocytes requires SNAP-25 but not a diffusible messenger. (7/694)

Depletion of Ca2+ stores in Xenopus oocytes activated entry of Ca2+ across the plasma membrane, which was measured as a current I(soc) in subsequently formed cell-attached patches. I(soc) survived excision into inside-out configuration. If cell-attached patches were formed before store depletion, I(soc) was activated outside but not inside the patches. I(soc) was potentiated by microinjection of Clostridium C3 transferase, which inhibits Rho GTPase, whereas I(soc) was inhibited by expression of wild-type or constitutively active Rho. Activation of I(soc) was also inhibited by botulinum neurotoxin A and dominant-negative mutants of SNAP-25 but was unaffected by brefeldin A. These results suggest that oocyte I(soc) is dependent not on aqueous diffusible messengers but on SNAP-25, probably via exocytosis of membrane channels or regulatory molecules.  (+info)

Botulinum toxin treatment of hemifacial spasm and blepharospasm: objective response evaluation. (8/694)

Twenty seven patients with hemifacial spasm (HFS) and sixteen patients with blepharospasm (BS) having mean Jankovic disability rating scale score of 2.56+0.58 SD and 2.81+0.54 SD, respectively, were treated with botulinum toxin A (BTX-A) injections. The total number of injection sessions were ninety one with relief response in 98.91%. The mean improvement in function scale score was 3.78+0.64 SD and 3.29+1.07 SD respectively, in HFS and BS groups. The clinical benefit induced by botulinum toxin lasted for a mean of 4.46+3.11 SD (range 2 to 13) months in HFS group and 2.66+1.37 SD (range 1 to 6) months, in BS groups. Transient ptosis was seen in 4.39% of total ninety one injection sessions. These findings show that local botulinum toxin treatment provides effective, safe and long lasting relief of spasms.  (+info)

Stroke imposes significant burdens on health services and society, and as such there is a growing need to assess the cost-effectiveness of stroke treatment to ensure maximum benefit is derived from limited resources. This study compared the cost-effectiveness of treating post-stroke upper limb spasticity with botulinum toxin type A plus an upper limb therapy programme against the therapy programme alone. Data on resource use and health outcomes were prospectively collected for 333 patients with post-stroke upper limb spasticity taking part in a randomized trial and combined to estimate the incremental cost per quality adjusted life year (QALY) gained of botulinum toxin type A plus therapy relative to therapy alone. The base case incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER) of botulinum toxin type A plus therapy was £93,500 per QALY gained. The probability of botulinum toxin type A plus therapy being cost-effective at the England and Wales cost-effectiveness threshold value of £20,000 per QALY was 0.36.
Botulinum Toxin Therapy for Chronic Migraine What is botulinum toxin? Botulinum toxin (Onabotulinum Toxin A) is made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In high doses it can produce muscle paralysis. In low doses, it is used to treat many conditions. Botulinum toxin is a medicine approved by the FDA to prevent chronic migraines. How does it work? It is unclear how botulinum toxin treats chronic migraine. Botulinum toxin injections can cause relaxation of muscles and can block nerve signal transmission. The effects last about 12 weeks. It works best if treatment is done every 12 weeks. It may take more than one treatment to feel the full effect of botulinum toxin therapy. How do I know it will help me? Botulinum toxin treatments are expensive and come with some risk. Both your provider and insurance consider this treatment when less invasive treatments have not worked for you. Botulinum toxin has been found to work well for chronic migraine. Most people (up to 70%) feel ...

Background Focal spasticity is a significant motor disorder following stroke, and Botulinum Toxin Type-A (BoNT-A) is a useful treatment for this. The authors evaluated kinematic modifications induced by spasticity, and whether or not there is any improvement following injection of BoNT-A.. Methods Eight patients with stroke with upper-limb spasticity, showing a flexor pattern, were evaluated using kinematics before and after focal treatment with BoNT-A. A group of sex- and age-matched normal volunteers acted as a control group.. Results Repeated-measures ANOVA showed that patients with stroke performed more slowly than the control group. Following treatment with BoNT-A, there was a significant improvement in kinematics in patients with stroke, while in the control group, performance remained unchanged.. Conclusions Focal treatment of spasticity with BoNT-A leads to an adaptive change in the upper limb of patients with spastic stroke. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Structural and biochemical characterization of botulinum neurotoxin subtype b2 binding to its receptors. AU - Davies, Jonathan R.. AU - Masuyer, Geoffrey. AU - Stenmark, Pål. PY - 2020/9/17. Y1 - 2020/9/17. N2 - Botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs) can be used therapeutically to treat a wide range of neuromuscular and neurological conditions. A collection of natural BoNT variants exists which can be classified into serologically distinct serotypes (BoNT/B), and further divided into subtypes (BoNT/B1, B2,...). BoNT subtypes share a high degree of sequence identity within the same serotype yet can display large variation in toxicity. One such example is BoNT/B2, which was isolated from Clostridium botulinum strain 111 in a clinical case of botulism, and presents a 10-fold lower toxicity than BoNT/B1. In an effort to understand the molecular mechanisms behind this difference in potency, we here present the crystal structures of BoNT/B2 in complex with the ganglioside receptor GD1a, and ...

Therefore, a trial was designed to assess the effects of botulinum toxin type A on scar formation after thyroid surgery. METHODS: A double-blind, randomized, controlled trial was designed. All patients underwent a preoperative survey to assess scar history. All patients underwent a total thyroidectomy, hemithyroidectomy, or parathyroidectomy through a standardized incision. At the conclusion of the case, one half of the incision was injected ...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the efficacy and safety of and satisfaction with botulinum toxin type A (BoNTA; BOTOX: Allergan, Inc., Irvine, CA) for prophylactic treatment of migraine headache in patients previously failing prophylaxis because of issues pertaining to compliance. Background.- Numerous factors (eg, adverse effects, tolerability, cost, frequency of dosage, hesitancy to take daily medication, failure to complete treatment) negatively influence compliance with the preventive pharmacology for migraine prophylaxis. BoNTA may offer benefit in improving compliance because of its long duration of action, injectable route of administration, and its tolerability (adverse event [AE]) profile.. METHODS: This was a randomized, double-blind, single-center, placebo-controlled study (months 1 to 3) of BoNTA with a cross-over to open-label BoNTA treatment (months 4 to 6). Criteria for enrollment included patients with disabling headache (International Headache Society, International Classification of ...

Participants with a Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS) score of 1+ or above received BoNT-A (Dysport) 500 U or placebo to one or more wrist and elbow mover muscles, plus unstructured rehabilitation. The primary outcome was the MAS score in the most affected joint 4 weeks after first injection. Follow-up was 24 weeks.. RESULTS: A total of 163 patients were enrolled and assigned to placebo (n = 83) or BoNT-A (n = 80). Mean time since stroke was ...
Intravesical botulinum toxin (BoNT) injection is effective in reducing urgency and urinary incontinence. It temporarily inhibits the detrusor muscle contraction by blocking the release of acetylcholine (Ach) from the preganglionic and postganglionic nerves in the efferent nerves. BoNT-A also blocks ATP release from purinergic efferent nerves in the detrusor muscle. In afferent nerves, BoNT-A injection markedly reduces the urothelial ATP release and increases nitric oxide (NO) release from the urothelium. BoNT-A injection in the urethra or bladder has been developed in the past few decades as the treatment method for detrusor sphincter dyssyndergia, incontinence due to neurogenic or idiopathic detrusor overactivity, sensory disorders, including bladder hypersensitivity, overactive bladder, and interstitial cystitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Although the FDA only approved BoNT-A injection treatment for neurogenic detrusor overactivity and for refractory overactive bladder, emerging clinical trials

Botulinum toxin is one of the most toxic natural substances; it acts by blocking the neuromuscular transmission by inhibiting Acetylcholine (Ach) releasing from the motor nerve into the neuromuscular junction. Although the toxin inhibits ACh release, other transmitters can also be inhibited. Botulinum toxin, specifically toxin type A (BONT-A) has been used since the 1970s to treat many different disorders, such as general spasticity resulting from stroke, multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy, strabismus, hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating, pain, and it is effective in combating migraine and tension headaches. Since prostate gland is under the influence of autonomic innervation and associated neurotransmitters, the effects of BONT-A on the prostate have gained attention in the urological community and it has been studied in different species, including rats, dogs and humans. The aim of this paper is to review the mechanism of action of botulinum toxin and to discuss in particular the results of ...
With the above provided answer to the question of how much a Botox treatment costs, a lot of people simply cannot afford getting this treatment for such a high rate. Hence, a lot of them are looking for cheaper or discounted Botox treatments.. Though there are cheap offers for Botox injections in the market, they may not be worth a try. For one, Botox parties, which are offered by some practitioners today, may not be as safe. Botox parties involve inviting patients to come to the house of the practitioner so more people can share a single vial of the Botox. The more people sharing one vial, the less the price of the overall treatment will become. However, the downside of this setting is that the setup does not always allow for the best sterile environment. Safety is something for you to be extra aware of during such sessions of sharing a Botox injection treatment.. There are also clinics and spas that offer cheap Botox injections, usually $150 per treatment. However, the common problem with this ...

Taking a dietary supplement of organic zinc and the enzyme phytase four days before receiving botulinum toxin injections made the toxin more effective in 93 percent of patients tested in a recent study at The Methodist Hospital in Houston.. Dr. Charles Soparkars research has resulted in a patent-pending dietary supplement combining zinc and phytase (trademarked as ZYTAZE™) to be available to patients as early as this month. Forty-one of the 44 patients who took the oral supplements prior to botulinum toxin injections (Botox®, Dysport®, or Myobloc®) showed improved results. Many of the patients in the study were being treated for a rare form of eyelid spasm called blepharospasm and had previously responded poorly to botulinum toxin injections.. Soparkars research team will present the effect of dietary zinc supplementation on botulinum toxin treatments at the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgerys 41st Annual Fall Scientific Symposium on Oct. 14 in ...
Many years ago, Botox® Cosmetic was introduced to the medical world for the treatment of muscle spasms. However, it was later discovered that Botox injections could also temporarily reduce or eliminate the prominence of the central frown line, forehead creases, crows feet and thick bands in the neck. Tiny quantities of the toxin are injected into the muscles where treatment is desired and the treated muscles weaken over the following week. The injection is quick, virtually painless and has no downtime. Most treatments last from 4 to 6 months and can be repeated as necessary.. Dysport is newer in the U.S. (on the market since only April, 2009), but it has been battling Botox head to head in Europe and elsewhere for several years already. Heres what we know so far about the battle of these big boys in the nonsurgical esthetic arena: Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau are botulinum toxin type A proteins and work in a similar fashion. Dysport may be minimally less expensive, but not enough so to make any ...

http://www.yourlawyer.com/topics/overview/botox>Botox can migrate to other parts of the body, placing patients at risk for developing symptoms of the paralyzing illness botulism, a news study says. The study contradicts assurances made by the maker of Botox, and comes just weeks after the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it was beginning a safety review of Botox and other similar drugs.. Botox, which is made with botulinum toxin type A, is approved in the US for treatment of conditions such as blepharospasm (spasm of the eyelids), cervical dystonia (severe neck muscle spasms), and severe primary axillary hyperhydrosis (excess sweating). Botox Cosmetic, which also uses botulinum toxin Type A, is approved for temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe facial frown lines. A similar drug, Myobloc, is made from botulinum toxin Type B, and is approved for the treatment of adults with cervical dystonia.. According to the FDA, there have been reports of Botox, ...

Botox is a brand of botulinum toxin type A, a purified substance thats derived from the bacteria that causes botulism. Other common brands include Botox® Cosmetic, Xeomin® and Dysport.. Xeomin® (at $200/area) is the same molecule as Botox® (at $300/area), and therefore yields the same results. Both work for cosmetic purposes by blocking muscular nerve impulses which actually weakens the muscle so that it cant contract. As such, they are very effective at diminishing certain facial wrinkles. Though the effects are temporary, they often last for up to four months.. While some RNs can be highly skilled injectors, I personally perform your Botox® injections to give you the optimum, safest results. If you book an injection appointment elsewhere, be sure to ask who will be doing your injections. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Botulinum toxin A for lower facial contouring. T2 - A prospective study. AU - Yu, Chung Chih. AU - Chen, Philip Kuo Ting. AU - Chen, Yu Ray. PY - 2007/10/1. Y1 - 2007/10/1. N2 - Background: A prominent mandibular angle is a common reason for aesthetic treatment among Asian women. Such women usually present with hypertrophic masseteric muscles, and one treatment for this uses botulinum toxin A (BoNTA). Detailed effectiveness and physiologic influences of this therapy are still under investigation. Methods: The authors report a prospective study of 10 female volunteers with hypertrophic masseteric muscles who received a single treatment comprising intramuscular injection of BoNTA. The facial change and the discomfort of the injection were self-rated using a visual analog scale, and the patients were regularly inspected up to 1 year. Bite forces also were measured for chronological documentation. Volume changes of masticating muscles were evaluated by three-dimensional computed ...
Summary: Aim: assessment of sebum production dynamics in patients who received treatment for mimic and static wrinkles in glabella and forehead regions with phase of a menstrual cycle taken into account. Material and Methods. We observed 15 female patients aged 24-38 years who received botulinum toxin therapy. Each BTX-Avial contained 100 units of lyophilized preparation. The solution of BTX-Awas prepared by mixing it with 2 ml of sterile saline. Five intramuscular injections with 2 U of BTX-A per point were made across the forehead, while 3 U injections were done in the glabellar area. The total amount of botulinum toxin used was 19 U per patient. Results. Maximum decrease in sebum production was observed 4 weeks after botulinum toxin injections, and return to baseline was observed at 16 weeks of follow-up. Conclusion. According to the obtained data, it may be stated that botulinum toxin injections affect sebum production with a maximum decrease observed at 4 weeks after botulinum toxin ...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS Botulinum toxin has become a widely adopted treatment for patients with recalcitrant overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. Some recommend clean intermittent self-catheterisation (CISC) if a postvoid residual (PVR) ,200 ml posttreatment, but there is no evidence for this recommendation. The aim of this study was to identify whether abstinence from CISC as a routine strategy for patients with a PVR following intradetrusor botulinum toxin injections is associated with any measurable adversity. METHODS This was a cohort observation study. Patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) attending a medical urology centre were observed before and after botulinum toxin treatment. Intradetrusal botulinum toxin injections were administered in the day-treatment centre at a medical urology centre in London, UK. Patients were reviewed at follow-up consultations to measure PVR. RESULTS Of the 240 patients studied, 215 were women and 25 were men, of whom, 196 (82%) received ...
We studied the safety and efficacy of 0 U, 50 U, 100 U, 150 U (five sites), 86 Usub and 100 Usub (three sites) botulinum toxin type A (BoNTA; BOTOX®; Allergan, Inc., Irvine, CA, USA) for the prophylaxis of chronic tension-type headache (CTTH). Three hundred patients (62.3% female; mean age 42.6 years) enrolled. For the primary endpoint, the mean change from baseline in the number of TTH-free days per month, there was no statistically significant difference between placebo and four BoNTA groups, but a significant difference favouring placebo vs. BoNTA 150 was observed (4.5 vs. 2.8 tension headache-free days/month; P = 0.007). All treatment groups improved at day 60. Although efficacy was not demonstrated for the primary endpoint, at day 90, more patients in three BoNTA groups had ≥50% decrease in tension headache days than did placebo (P ≤ 0.024). Most treatment-related adverse events were mild or moderate, and transient. BoNTA was safe and well-tolerated in the study. ...

|p| Botulinum toxin is a type of neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It has eight different serotypes: A, B, C1, C2, D, E, F, and G. Its main mechanism of action is blocking the release of acetylcholine which is one of the main neurotransmitters at the neuromuscular junction, causing muscle paralysis. Botulinum toxins have significant therapeutic effects in different pathological conditions including cervical dystonia, glabellar facial lines, noninvasive facial aesthetic treatments, motor disorders in cerebral palsy, bruxism and temporomandibular disorders, axillary hyperhidrosis, and chronic migraine. It is also used in cosmetic purposes. Injectable and topical formulations are present for botulinum toxins in medical use, and are approved by the FDA. The cosmetological applications for botulinum toxins include correction of lines, creases and wrinkling all over the face, chin, neck and chest, to dermatological applications.|/p| |p| This book aims to contribute to the future
The bottom line?. The authors concluded: This study suggests a potentially meaningful role for zinc and/or phytase supplementation in increasing the degree and duration of botulinum toxin effect in the treatment of cosmetic facial rhytids, benign essential blepharospasm, and hemifacial spasm.. When a skeletal muscle nerve ending is stimulated it releases acetylcholine, which triggers an impulse to the muscle. Botulinum toxin blocks release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction. As shown in the photo above, zinc is part of the botulinum toxin structure. A more detailed explanation is here.. Phytases are enzymes that increase zinc absorption from the intestines, making more available in the circulation and at the botulinum toxin site of action.. This study is important because it shows that taking more zinc may increase the response and duration of effect of Botox type drugs. This may be particularly useful for patients who experience a decline in response over time.. 4/10/13 9:28 ...
Botulinum Toxin is a natural substance which is produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. Botulinum Toxin was originally approved to relax spastic muscles in order to treat dystonia, a neuromuscular disease. It was then discovered that it was also highly effective in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles and has now become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures worldwide. Botulinum Toxin blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles and is used to alleviate dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles arise due to facial mimicry and hence manifest themselves as the well-known frown, on the forehead and around the eye area as crows feet. Because the muscle contraction is inhibited, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed out. Besides that, botulinum toxin helps prevent the formation of new wrinkles. Extensive research has shown that this procedure is completely safe as Botulinum is naturally being degraded by the body after a certain period of time.. Depending on the extent of ...
0038]Botulinum toxin type A can be obtained by establishing and growing cultures of Clostridium botulinum in a fermenter and then harvesting and purifying the fermented mixture in accordance with known procedures. All the botulinum toxin serotypes are initially synthesized as inactive single chain proteins which must be cleaved or nicked by proteases to become neuroactive. The bacterial strains that make botulinum toxin serotypes A and G possess endogenous proteases and serotypes A and G can therefore be recovered from bacterial cultures in predominantly their active form. In contrast, botulinum toxin serotypes C1, D and E are synthesized by nonproteolytic strains and are therefore typically unactivated when recovered from culture. Serotypes B and F are produced by both proteolytic and nonproteolytic strains and therefore can be recovered in either the active or inactive form. However, even the proteolytic strains that produce, for example, the botulinum toxin type B serotype, only cleave a ...
PARIS, FRANCE, 23 May 2020 - Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) today presents the results of two patient surveys. The surveys involved over 400 respondents from five countries, living with spasticity or cervical dystonia and receiving botulinum neurotoxin type A (BoNT-A) injections. The results show that over 80% of respondents experienced debilitating symptom recurrence, and revealed that a lack of long-lasting symptom control between injections has a profound impact on the personal and professional lives of patients.1-4. The results from these two important patient surveys provide significant insight into the real-life burden of the two conditions; however, they also highlight a worrying disconnect between patients treatment expectations and their actual experience. The findings, which build on our growing understanding of spasticity and cervical dystonia, provide us with the potential to unlock meaningful changes in clinical practice, said Dr Alberto Esquenazi, Department of Physical ...

Botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs) produced by Clostridium botulinum are the most poisonous substances known to humankind. It is essential to have a simple, quick, and sensitive method for the detection and quantification of botulinum toxin in various media, including complex biological matrices. Our laboratory has developed a mass spectrometry-based Endopep-MS assay that is able to rapidly detect and differentiate all types of BoNTs by extracting the toxin with specific antibodies and detecting the unique cleavage products of peptide substrates. Botulinum neurotoxin type E (BoNT/E) is a member of a family of seven distinctive BoNT serotypes (A-G) and is the causative agent of botulism in both humans and animals. To improve the sensitivity of the Endopep-MS assay, we report here the development of novel peptide substrates for the detection of BoNT/E activity through systematic and comprehensive approaches. Our data demonstrate that several optimal peptides could accomplish 500-fold improvement in ...
Botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs) are zinc-dependent endopeptidases produced by members of the bacterial genus Clostridium (17, 36, 64). The seven BoNT serotypes, designated A to G, are structurally similar, each comprising a heavy chain that governs neuron-specific cell binding, cell uptake, and translocation into the cytosol and a light chain that contains endopeptidase activity (35, 43, 45). While cell surface receptor and endopeptidase substrate specificity differ between serotypes, all BoNTs act by specifically cleaving one or more soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor attachment protein receptor (SNARE) proteins, inhibiting neurotransmitter release at the neuromuscular junction (11, 12, 44, 49, 52-54, 67). This block in neurotransmitter release leads to the flaccid paralysis characteristic of the disease botulism and can cause death by respiratory failure resulting from paralysis of the diaphragm and intercostal muscles. BoNTs are extremely toxic, with estimated human lethal doses of BoNT ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Possible mechanisms for the effects of botulinum toxin on pain. AU - Arezzo, Joseph C.. PY - 2002/11/1. Y1 - 2002/11/1. N2 - The therapeutic effects of botulinum toxin are principally, if not exclusively, derived from an alteration in the release of acetylcholine (ACh) at pre-synaptic neurons. The rationale for how these effects could be beneficial in conditions characterized by excessive muscle contraction is clear, but the hypotheses regarding botulinum toxin-induced effects on pain are highly speculative. We explore five possible mechanisms by which botulinum toxin could directly or indirectly alter pain, including: 1) changes in the sensitivity and response patterns of group III and IV muscle nociceptors, 2) diminished activity in the γ-motor neurons and consequent changes in muscle spindle afferents, 3) alterations in cholinergic control of vascular and autonomic functions, including neurogenic inflammation, 4) induced neuroplastic changes in the processing of afferent ...

Such approaches must take into account the extensive BoNT sequence variability; the seven BoNT serotypes differ by up to 70% at the amino acid level. Here, we have analyzed 49 complete published sequences of BoNTs and show that all toxins also exhibit variability within serotypes ranging between 2.6 and 31.6%. To determine the impact of such sequence differences on immune recognition, we studied the binding and neutralization capacity of six BoNT serotype A (BoNT/A) monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) to BoNT/A1 and BoNT/A2, which differ by 10% at the amino acid level. While all six MAbs bound BoNT/A1 with high affinity, three of the six MAbs showed a marked reduction in binding affinity of 500- to more than 1,000-fold to BoNT/A2 toxin. Binding results predicted in vivo toxin neutralization; NlAbs or MAb combinations that ...
Treatment options for dystonia are not curative but symptomatic; the treatment of choice for focal dystonias is repeated botulinum toxin injections. Here, we present the case of a 46-year-old beautician with focal dystonia in her left hand that affected her ability to work. Pharmacological treatment with clonazepam and gabapentin failed to resolve her symptoms and was discontinued due to side effects (sleepiness, gastrointestinal disorders). Intramuscular injection of botulinum toxin (incobotulinumtoxinA, Xeomin) into the extensor digitorum communis (35 U), flexor carpi radialis (35 U), and flexor digitorum superficialis (30 U) muscles resulted in complete resolution of symptoms at clinical assessments at 1, 3, 6, and 10 months after the injections, confirmed by the results of surface electromyography 10 months after treatment. The patient was able to work again 1 month after treatment. No reinjection has been necessary at the last evaluation (12 months after treatment). In
Scientific, peer-reviewed Dermatology article, indexed with MEDLINE/PubMed: Clinical Equivalence of Conventional OnabotulinumtoxinA (900 KDa) and IncobotulinumtoxinA (Neurotoxin Free From Complexing Proteins - 150 KDa): 2013 Multidisciplinary French Consensus in Aesthetics : Botulinum neurotoxins are the most popular non-surgical treatments for aesthetic indications, but there is uncertainty about whether certain formulations are comparable in efficacy and safety and can be substituted for one another by a simple one to one dose conversion ratio. An expert panel of French practitioners was convened to establish a consensus on the clinical equivalence in efficacy and safety of OnabotulinumtoxinA (900 KDa) and IncobotulinumtoxinA (neurotoxin free from complexing proteins - 150 KDa). The consensus was divided into three sections incorporating a biological, bibliographic and clinical analysis of the two toxins. This included a review of the published data that have directly compared the two toxins for

Injections of botulinum toxin (Botox) may help heal a tear (fissure) in the anus.. The internal anal sphincter, one of two muscles that control the anus, is always under tension. If this tension (also called resting pressure) is too high, spasms and reduced blood flow can cause an anal fissure or prevent an existing one from healing. Botulinum toxin, the poison that causes botulism, temporarily paralyzes the internal anal sphincter. This reduces the spasm and allows the fissure to heal.. Botulinum injections may be more helpful than nitroglycerin ointment, but the studies do not all agree.footnote 1, footnote 2 A review of many studies showed that injections of botulinum toxin were no better at healing anal fissure than nitroglycerin ointment.footnote 3 Fissures may return after treatment with Botox is discontinued.. Side effects of botulinum injections may include the inability to control the passage of gas (gas incontinence), pain from the injections, bleeding, infection at the injection site, ...

Two sisters with recurrent lesions, one on axillae and other on the groin, and with limited response to classical treatments were treated with injections botulinum toxin type A. We observed marked improvement in the patient treated in the groin and complete remission in the patient treated in the axillae. It was possible to spare the use of systemic antibiotics and topical corticosteroids. The high cost is a restrictive factor to routine use and large studies are necessary to access efficacy and cost benefit profile..

In botulinum toxin failures it is important to differentiate whether the patient has failed treatment because of the inability of botulinum toxin to relieve squeezing, or whether opening the eyelids is the problem. This can be determined by having the patient vigorously squeeze the eyelids closed while the examiners fingers attempt to pry the eyelids open. If the patient has markedly weakened eyelid squeezing, then botulinum toxin is working. We have shown that in blepharospasm patients who appear to be botulinum toxin failures, the incidence of apraxia of lid opening approximates 50%. It is important for physicians and patients to diagnose and understand apraxia of lid opening, as it is the most common cause of failure or inadequate response with botulinum toxin therapy. Increasing the dose of botulinum toxin beyond what is necessary to relieve spasm frequently makes ptosis (droopy eyelids). After apraxia of lid opening the next most common cause of inability to adequately open the eyelids is ...

Botox injections can be used to temporarily reduce wrinkles but can also treat other health problems such as severe sweating or lazy-eye. Learn how.
Botox Cosmetic is an injectable cosmetic treatment used to relax and smooth the appearance of wrinkles on the face. It paralyzes the muscles in your face temporarily through its active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A. Botox can be injected into the forehead between your eyes.. ​. Botox injections for the forehead are treatments to smooth horizontal lines and vertical wrinkles between the eyes. The injections work to relax the muscles that cause these wrinkles to form.. ​. Some people may choose to receive Botox injections in their foreheads to minimize the appearance of vertical frown lines and horizontal forehead wrinkles.. ​. Even though the use of Botox in the forehead has been recently approved by the FDA, highly qualified practitioners are still cautious. Thats because while Botox can be effective at smoothing wrinkles, it can cause too much muscle relaxation, resulting in drooping or even uneven eyebrows.. ​. The injection dosage must be carefully monitored. ...

Dysport is so similar to BOTOX, in fact, that the two are almost indistinguishable at first glance. Dysport is used to treat the same facial areas - forehead wrinkles and frown lines. And the two injectables work through the same process; blocking the nerve impulses to the affected muscles.. War of the Wrinkle-Reducers: BOTOX vs. Dysport. With two such similar products, how can you as a consumer decide? There are a number of factors to consider, including price, efficacy, and duration. As Dr. David Shafer states, Both products are excellent in their effectiveness and safety…Dysport works the same way as BOTOX Cosmetic. BOTOX and Dysport are nearly tied in most categories, but there are subtle differences to explore. Dr. Naderi suggests that, BOTOX is more precise. It travels less. Dysport travels more so it gives a softer relaxation. I like BOTOX for the crows feet and eyelids and glabella and I like Dysport more for the forehead but overall they are very similar.. Price. Dr. Shafer ...
