Tell me more about Botulinum’s toxins history?

This toxin is secreted by a bacterium known as Clostridium Botulinum and was isolated in about 1850. It can cause diseases in humans know as Botulism poisoning (usually as a result of inadequate treatment in canning of meat products). The toxin can be lethal in a given dose and much has been written on the subject.

More recently in the last 2 decades the toxin has been produced and used in mainstream medicine to treat muscular disorders by injection of the toxin in very specific doses by a specialist in their field. It has allowed difficult conditions such as toticiollis (wry neck), strabismus (squints) migraine, and muscle spasm in cerebral palsy, facial asymmetry (as a result of Bell’s palsy), some forms of bladder dysfunction to relieve symptoms. These conditions should only be treated by a qualified medical specialist in that particular field of medicine.

More recently and more by chance than design, Botulinum toxin A has been found to have an application in the field of Aesthetic medicine after some of its effects were described by Dr Jean Carruthers in Canada.
