BOTOX as medication




The toxin is produced by the gram-negative anaerobic bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is harvested from a culture medium after fermentation of a toxin-producing strain of C botulinum, which lyses and liberates the toxin into the culture. The toxin is then extracted, precipitated, purified, and finally crystallized with ammonium sulfate. BTX-A should be diluted with preservative-free saline and the preparation used within 4 hours of reconstitution. Conditions for stability of the toxin in solution include pH 4.2-6.8 and temperature less than 20 degrees Celsius. Crystallized toxin is inactivated easily in solution by shaking
