NeuroBloc Botulinum Toxin Type B (10000 U)

$285

NeuroBloc is a medicine used to treat cervical dystonia in adults. Cervical dystonia, which is also known as torticollis, is a disorder when the neck muscles contract, causing abnormal movement and twisting of the neck and unusual positioning of the head. NeuroBloc contains the active substance botulinum toxin type B. NeuroBloc is available as a solution for injection (5,000 units [U] per millilitre). It is only used in hospitals, by a doctor who has experience in the treatment of cervical dystonia and in the use of botulinum toxins.

Description

NeuroBloc treatment starts with 10,000 U, divided into equal doses and injected directly into the two to four muscles in the neck and shoulders that are most affected. The dose and number of injections depend on the patient’s response.

How does NeuroBloc work?

The active substance in NeuroBloc botulinum toxin type B, is a well-known toxic substance produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The toxin is the cause of a type of food poisoning called botulism, where patients suffer from muscle weakness and paralysis. The toxin reduces the release of acetylcholine from the nerve endings. Acetylcholine is needed to transfer electrical impulses from the nerves to the muscles in order for the muscles to contract.
In NeuroBloc, the toxin is used as a muscle relaxant. When injected directly into a muscle it reduces the release of acetylcholine and muscle contraction in the affected neck or shoulder muscles, thereby relieving the patient’s symptoms. The effect of an injection of NeuroBloc gradually wears off over time.
