The Global Botulinum Toxin Market was valued at USD XX billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. Botulinum toxin is one of the most toxic biological substances. Botulinum toxin also termed as miracle poison. It is a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum, it is an anaerobic, gram-positive, spore-forming rod commonly found on plants, in soil, water, and intestinal tracts of animals. It is commonly known by its trademarked brand name BOTOX®. It is the same toxin that causes a life-threatening category of food poisoning termed botulism. Doctors use it in minor doses to treat health problems. Clostridium botulinum produces eight types of toxins, labelled from A to G.

In 2002, Food and Drug Associations (FDA) approved the use of botulinum toxin A for the cosmetic purpose of temporarily reducing glabellar forehead frown lines. Botulinum A and botulinum B block nerve signals in the muscles. In order to contract, a muscle must accept a signal from exterior nerve endings. The signal is the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, which binds the receptor with the muscle, initiating muscle contraction.

Botulinum toxin constrains the release of acetylcholine and therefore also prevents muscle contraction. Muscle weakness is usually seen within two to four days, and paralysis or maximal weakness is noted around ten days.  The botulinum toxins effects are not permanent, due to the affected nerves sprout new endings. Nearly by three months a working connection between the muscle and nerve is re-established.

However, an element of muscle wasting occurs with each injection. This incremental muscle wasting explains that the interval between two treatments is much needed and can gradually lengthen following repeated injections. Botulinum toxin is injected into affected muscles by using a 30 gauge 1-inch needle. Doses are tailored according to the mode of use and individual patients, and the dose depends upon the mass of muscle being injected, the larger the mass the higher the dose required.

However, lower doses may require in patients with pre-existing weakness and in females. Apart from its cosmetic use, it has numerous clinical applications it plays an important role in the management of an extensive variety of medical situations, specifically hemifacial spasm, strabismus, and focal dystonias, and numerous spastic movement disorders.
