Botulinum Toxin Type A – Possible Anti-Nociceptive Effect on Mice


Botulinum neurotoxin has been used in the treatment of various groups of cronic neuromuscular diseases, which include neuromuscular junction signaling, non-neuromuscular transmission, cholinergic, or non-cholinergic.
Having specificity on releasing neurotransmitter vesicles with acetylcholine in the synaptic gap, the main usage of botulinum toxin was as a muscle relaxant drug in painful or painless spastic syndromes.
