dosageBOTOXINA (Botulinum Toxin Type A for Therapy) is a sterile, lyophilized form of purified C. botulinum toxin type A, produced from the crude toxin of the culture of the Hall strain of Clostridium botulinum grown in a mediumcontaining trypticase and yeast extract. A series of purifying procedure were taken to form a crystalline complex consisting of the active high molecular weight toxin protein and an associated hemagglutinin. After re-dissolved and dialyzed the crystalline toxin, an accurate amount of the sterile filtered (0.2 microns) toxin were added to a solution containing gelatine-dextran-sucrose, then lyophilized.Each vial of β0ToxinA® contains 100 units (U) of C. botulinum toxin type A, 5mg of gelatine, 25mg of dextran and 25mg of sucrose. Dilute with sterile normal saline according to different needs before using. The white loose production turns to be colourless or yellowish transparent solution after the reconstitution.One unit (U) of β0ToxinA® corresponds to 1 LD50 of Botulinum Toxin Type A while being intraperitoneally injected into mouse. β0ToxinA® could block neuromuscular conduction by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine and therefore causes local muscle flaccid paralysis.

Indications for injectable therapies

β0ToxinA® is indicated for the treatment of blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm in adults and some types of strabismus and strabismus which can not be corrected through operation in the patients 12 years of age and above.

Usage and Dosage

  1. Position for injection: The injection should be administered intramuscularly perpendicular to the centre of the age wrinkle, about 1 mm from the bone taking a total of 4 to 16 points of injection for the whole visum.
  2. Dosage: Up to 100 U can be evenly distributed in chosen the points. The injecting volume into each muscle should not exceed 0,1 ml. In case of unsatisfactory response, a supplementary injection may be given. In case of relapse, the dose can be repeated or increased even at irregular intervals, but for each muscle the maximum dose should be less than 5 U/injection.
  3. Dilution of β0ToxinA®: The dilution of β0ToxinA® with sterile physiological saline should be done carefully on the basis of the actual requirement. Following is a reference table of recommended dilutions:
U / 0.1 ml Volume of
solvent (ml)
10.0 1.0
5.0 2.0
2.5 4.0
1.25 8.0

Shake the vial gently after adding sterile physiological saline until completely dissolved. The reconstituted β0ToxinA® should be used at once or stored in refrigerator at 2 to 8° C and be used within 4 hours. The container and the syringe used with the drug as well as the residual β0ToxinA® solution should be disposed of after sterilization.

Side Effects

Temporary ptosis of the eyelid, drawback of the lower eyelid, reduced blinking, eyelid close incompletely, weakness of facial muscles, etc. may occur to a few patients who received β0ToxinA® therapy on the visus, however, all such symptoms disappear spontaneously within 3 to 8 weeks.Temporary and different degree of ptosis of the eyelid, vertical deviation and rarely mydriasis, related to the diffusion of the toxin to the muscles adjacent to the eye, may occur in some patients who receive β0ToxinA® therapy near the eye, however, all such symptoms disappear spontaneously within 3 to 8 weeks.


β0ToxinA® is contraindicated in individuals with anaphylactic tendency and known hypersensitivity to this preparation.The injection should be postponed in patients who have fever, acute infectious diseases and administered more carefully to patients with blood, heart, liver, lung diseases, active tuberculosis, pregnant women and never to children below 12 years of age.β0ToxinA® must not to be given to those suffering from eyebrow hyperplexia and myasthaenia gravis, it is ineffective in patients with serious muscle fiber contracture.

Drug interactions

β0ToxinA® may be potentiated by aminoglycoside antibiotic (such as gentamycin) therapy and so should not be administered while under such therapy.


  1. Administering physicians must have good knowledge of extraocular and facial muscle anatomy and be proficient at electromyographic amplifier technique.
  2. 1:1000 adrenaline should be prepared in case of accident. A short period of observation is recommended for patients having just received β0ToxinA® therapy.
