Book Description :

As little as two decades ago, deliberately injecting botulinum toxin into patients would have seemed foolhardy at best and criminal at worst. The increased clinical use of botulinum toxins has expanded the body of knowledge available on the structure and function of these proteins. This knowledge can be applied to topics as varied as therapies based on the endopeptidase activity of the toxins, vaccine development, protection against botulism, and vectors for neuronal drug delivery. Based on recent scientific and clinical information from top international authorities, Treatments from Toxins: The Therapeutic Potential of Clostridial Neurotoxins reviews the status of current research and development and identifies significant developments. Drawing on their vast experience in this field, the editors present the basic background of the bacteriology and genetics of the neurotoxigenic clostridia, a history of the discovery of the neurotoxins, and an overview of the tetanus and botulism diseases. The chapters detailing common medical applications of the toxins cover side effects and novel uses, including neuronal drug delivery strategies, and provide a fresh look at what can still be achieved. They also explore the toxins as potential threat agents and the advent of the therapeutic use of botulinum toxins. Highlighting the pitfalls, successes, and challenges that exist when engineering complex proteins, the book brings together the clinical and theoretical worlds. It presents a broad overview of the current status of botulinum research and its clinical applications.

Book Description :

Very few therapeutic agents in clinical medicine have found indication for so many clinical conditions, and in such a short time as did botulinum neurotoxins (Botox and others). Chronic migraine, bladder dysfunction , dystonia, hemifacial spasm , blepharospasm , drooling, excessive sweating and spasticity are all approved by FDA and many other indications are in the near horizon . The aesthetic/cosmetic use of Botox and other BoNTs already has a huge market worldwide. Stroke, Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Cerebral palsy as well as brain and spinal injury are among clinical conditions in which some of patients’ major symptoms can respond to botulinum toxin therapy Several books have been written on the subject of Botox and other neurotoxins for treatment of medical disorders ( including two books by Jabbari both published by Springer 2015 & 2017). However, despite the huge interest and enthusiasm of the public to learn more about Botox and other toxins, there is currently no book in the market on this subject which is specifically designed to inform and educate the public on botulinum toxin therapy. Botulinum Toxin Treatment explains and discusses in simple language the structure and function of botulinum toxin and other neurotoxins as well as the rational for its utility in different disease conditions. Safety, factors affecting efficacy and duration of action, as well as cost and insurance issues are also addressed.
