About this book

Therapeutic Uses of Botulinum Toxin outlines and examines our current understanding of botulinum toxin and its various therapeutic applications. The editors explore how this novel compound fits into a wide variety of treatment algorithms across medical subspecialties. Each chapter focuses on a particular symptom and explains how botulinum toxin is currently used for treatment. The chapter authors are all leaders in their fields and are respected for their progressive approach to treatment. Physicians will benefit not only from those chapters devoted to their particular sub-specialty, but from the inspiring success resulting from the use of botulinum toxin in other patient populations. The concluding chapter examines questions of immunity, explores economic issues, and attempts to forecast future directions for this novel and somewhat mysterious drug. Clinicians across a wide variety of disciplines will refer to this comprehensive reference time and time again.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book presents many of the clinical uses of the relatively new drug, botulinum toxin. … the book attempts to cover nearly all uses of the medication known to the assorted authors, including potential treatments for which there is little peer-reviewed literature. The purpose is to provide an overview of this medication, and present clinical scenarios in which the drug might be an appropriate choice. … The target audience should be clinicians (physicians and therapists) ... ." (Ross Bogey, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2008)
