History of Botox Botox and how it works
Clostridium botulinum is the bacterium from which we have our abbreviated name Botox. A German physician and poet Justinus Kerner first recognized that this toxin could be a possible candidate for therapeutic uses, calling it sausage poison. In 1870, Muller (another German physician), established to claim the name botulism. Then in 1895 Emile Van Ermengem was the first to isolate the bacteria, and in 1944 Edward Schantz cultured Clostridium botulinum and isolated the toxin. And finally in 1949, Burgen’s group discovered that botulinum toxin blocks neuromuscular transmission. Surprisingly in the 1950s toxin experimentally used as a cosmetic medical treatment in politicians, one of whom it is said that the actor and one of our presidents of the United States, Ronald Regan.
Botox is manufactured by Allergan Inc Irvine, California, a pharmaceutical company that specializes in neuromodulator, eye care, and skin care. According to Allergan Inc, is a powerful poison created by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. It is possibly the most toxic substance known with a lethal dose of about 100g that could kill every human being on earth! The spores of this toxin is produced in nature and can be found in virtually all land on earth. You do not think that poison exists in nature and could be dangerous. The worrying part is that all around us all the time.
This toxin interferes with nerve impulses and weakens or paralyzes the nerves that can cause the muscles contract abnormally for about four to six months. Although the results do not last years, not months, which are so dramatic that it is worth the time and money to get the procedure done regularly. Botulinum toxin is used in medical practices is purified so as not to cause botulism, which can occur if foods are not properly preserved or jarred and then consumed. According to Weekly vaccine, it was found that the toxin can also be inhaled.
Experiments show that this is a possibility, and that a vaccine has been formed to assist in the prevention of these cases.
In 1973 Alan B. Scott, MD, Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute used botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) in monkey experiments, and in 1980 he officially used BTX-A for the first time in humans to treat strabismus. In December 1989 BTX-A (Botox) was officially approved by the FDA and injections were given by an EMG (electromyogram), which places the worst area of muscle recruitment and is the most accurate way to administer the medication.
