Botulinum Toxin in Painful Diseases Book Review:

The exceptionally successful history of botulinum toxin and its likely future has hardly an equivalent. Initially, it was used in strabismus, blepharospasm and hemifacial spasm, later also in focal dystonia and spasticity and it has been shown to effectively treat wrinkles, hyperhidrosis and a great number of ensuing indications. By treating symptoms or disorders associated with pain, its analgesic effect was first noticed. The efficacy and reasons for this side effect have since been investigated and a number of models explaining the mode of action have been presented. However, even if we know that botulinum toxin undoubtedly helps in certain pain syndromes, there is still much work to do to identify the major ones, define the optimum dose and the preferred site of injection. Indicating current positions and kindling the growing interest in this extraordinary therapeutic agent this book presents a timely overview on pain management with botulinum toxin. Thus, it will be of great interest especially for anesthesiologists and neurologists in their clinical work and medical research.

Botulinum Toxin in Dermatology Book Review:

Even those clinicians who feel themselves far from aesthetic dermatology now recognise that BoNT-A is an extraordinary tool in their therapeutic armamentarium for treating complex disorders such as focal idiopathic hyperhidrosis. This has opened a therapeutic scenario for a group of patients very difficult to treat previously. Since the introduction of BoNT-A in the dermatological therapeutic armamentarium, in 1990, things have changed to the point that any dermatologist should now have knowledge of BoNT-A basics, and the practicalities of BoNT-A vial reconstitution and injection. Moreover, in the last years, a widespread availability of multiple different commercially available forms of BoNT-A has been for sale, thus the clinicians must now really know and consider the advantages and disadvantages of the different available products. These would include dosing/duration, immunogenicity, and spread of effect. What has not changed over the years is the safety profile of BoNT-A. The knowledge regarding its side effects and complications have greatly increased, confirming that, despite the attempts of some individuals to assert otherwise, BoNT-A remains one of the safest forms of treatment available to us as physicians. This edited collection provides a comprehensive practical guide on the use of botulinum toxin in several dermatological disorders, including focal idiopathic, axillary, palmar and plantar, craniofacial or segmental hyperhidrosis, chrono-aging, hidradenitis, and gives some suggestion on the use of BoNT-A for the treatment of several orphan skin diseases, not responding to conventional treatments like benign Hailey-Hiley disease, lichen simplex, osmidrosis. Using clear explanations, simple line drawings, diagrams and clinical pictures, it provides suggestions to improve practical knowledge on the use of BTX-A in dermatology. Hot topics include practical information for clinicians regarding the correct counselling of the patients to be treated; methods and ready to use tests to select patients to be treated; the optimal dosage and dilution according to the site of injection and the indication of use; the relevant injection sites for each condition; the correct technique of injection in the different areas of body surface; comparative dosage tables for the various formulations of toxin used; how to manage and prevent side effects related to the use of BoNT-A; common pitfalls and how to optimize outcomes; timing for the follow-up of treated patients. The authors hope that this book may be a starting point for the use of a drug that is still growing, and a useful tool for those clinicians who want to improve their knowledge about the use of BoNT-A in dermatology.

Botulinum Neurotoxin and Tetanus Toxin Book Review:

Botulinum Neurotoxin and Tetanus Toxin covers the mechanism of action, pathogenesis, and treatment of clostridial neurotoxins. The book is organized into four parts encompassing 18 chapters that discuss the origin, structure, pharmacology, toxicology, immunology, assays, and clinical issues of botulinum and tetanus neurotoxins. The introductory part of the book discusses the discovery and production of neurotoxins in various strains of Clostridium bacteria. This text also describes how specific bacteriophages and plasmids mediate the pathogenicity of some types of Clostridium botulinum and Clostridium tetani. The subsequent part provides an overview of issues related to toxin binding, including toxins that may serve as models for botulinum and tetanus neurotoxins. Discussions on the peripheral and central aspects of poisoning transport in the central nervous system and on the antagonistic drugs for clostridial neurotoxins are provided. The third part of the book addresses the antibodies against botulinum neurotoxin. Bioassay in mice and highly sensitive immunoassays, such as reversed passive hemagglutination, reversed passive latex agglutination, radioimmunoassay, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, are presented. The concluding part covers the animal models for these toxins and discusses the diagnosis and treatment of botulism and tetanus in human. The clinical use of Clostridium botulinum toxin type A in ocular and neuromuscular disease is also examined. This book will be of value to protein chemists, microbiologists, virologists, pharmacologists, immunologists, and clinicians.

Antinociceptive Effect of Botulinum Toxin A Involves Alterations in AMPA Receptor Expression and Glutamate Release in Spinal Dorsal Horn Neurons Book Review:

Highlights: BTX-A could retrograde axonal transport to the dorsal horn after peripheral application. BTX-A could decrease the expression and function of AMPA receptor in dorsal horn neurons. Pretreatment with BTX-A decrease formalin-evoked release of glutamate in dorsal horn neurons. Abstract: The use of botulinum toxin A (BTX-A) for various clinical therapeutic applications is increasing. It is widely believed that peripheral therapeutic or toxic effects of BTX-A are exclusively mediated by SNAP-25 cleavage. There is growing evidence of long-distance retrograde axonal transport of BTX-A on entering the central nervous system, subsequent to a local injection of the toxin. However, the prevalence of central antinociceptive effects after BTX-A peripheral application and its underlying mechanisms are unclear. Our results show that (1) BTX-A can undergo retrograde axonal transport to the dorsal horn after peripheral application; (2) Peripheral pretreatment with BTX-A decreases the expression and function of AMPA receptors in the spinal cord dorsal horn neurons; (3) Peripheral pretreatment with BTX-A does not change basal glutamate release, but decreases the effect of formalin-evoked release of glutamate in spinal cord dorsal horn neurons. These results suggest that peripheral application of BTX-A can change AMPA receptor expression in, and glutamate release from, spinal dorsal horn neurons, which may have significance in its central antinociceptive effects.
