What is BTXA™
BTXA™ is a global brand of Botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin is an exotoxin produced in the cultures of Clostridium botulinum. As a reversible neuromuscular blocker, BTXA™ inhibits the release of a major neurotransmitter (acetylcholine) to produce local muscle relaxation.
As BTXA™ is a muscle relaxant, it is effective to treat various neuromuscular disorders (See THERAPEUTIC INDICATION section) and muscle related cosmetic applications (See COSMETIC INDICATION section).
How does BTXA™ works?
Muscle is contracted by receiving signal from neurotransmitter through the transmission in the nerve. Acetylcholine is one of these neurotransmitters and BTXA™ actions by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine at presynaptic membrane of nerve terminals and resulting in muscular flaccid paralysis.
