Purified Neurotoxin Complex
DRUG DESCRIPTION



What are the possible side effects of botulinum toxin type A (Botox, Botox Cosmetic)?

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

The botulinum toxin contained in this medication can spread to other body areas beyond where it was injected. This has caused serious life-threatening side effects in some people receiving botulism toxin injections, even for cosmetic purposes.

BOTOX® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) Purified Neurotoxin Complex is a
sterile, vacuum-dried purified botulinum toxin type A, produced from fermentation
of Hall strain Clostridium botulinum type A grown in a medium containing casein
hydrolysate, glucose and yeast extract. It is purified from the culture solution
by dialysis and a series of acid precipitations to a complex consisting of the
neurotoxin, and several accessory proteins. The complex is dissolved in sterile
sodium chloride solution containing Albumin Human and is sterile filtered (0.2
microns) prior to filling and vacuum-drying.
One Unit of BOTOX® corresponds to the calculated median intraperitoneal lethal dose (LD50) in mice. The method utilized for performing the assay is
specific to Allergan's product, BOTOX®. Due to specific details of
this assay such as the vehicle, dilution scheme and laboratory protocols for
the various mouse LD50 assays, Units of biological activity of BOTOX® cannot
be compared to nor converted into Units of any other botulinum toxin or any
toxin assessed with any other specific assay method. Therefore, differences
in species sensitivities to different botulinum neurotoxin serotypes precludes
extrapolation of animal-dose activity relationships to human dose estimates.
The specific activity of BOTOX® is approximately 20 units/nanogram of neurotoxin protein complex.
Each vial of BOTOX® contains 100 Units (U) of Clostridium botulinum
type A neurotoxin complex, 0.5 milligrams of Albumin Human, and 0.9 milligrams
of sodium chloride in a sterile, vacuum-dried form without a preservative.Last reviewed on RxList: 3/26/2010
