Example text

Immunogenicity/ Immunoresistance BoNT is a foreign protein and is therefore antigenic. Therefore, repeated injections of BoNT can cause clinical nonresponse to it due to the production of neutralizing antibodies. Neutralizing antibody formation may lead to a lack of efficacy in treatments using BoNT. Since the incidence of antibody formation is extremely low, it used to be a concern only in the therapeutic field where 100 U or more of BoNT-A is used at one session, not in the cosmetic field where the dose used at one session is below this.

According to the guidelines of the manufacture and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the BoNT-A should not be used more than 4 h after reconstitution with normal saline due to a decrease of potency. As the BoNT-A is high cost, however, practically most of doctors reuse stored BoNT-A after refrigerator storage.  Based on my own experiences and data from innumerous papers on this point, it is the author’s conclusion that although potency may decrease to some extent by the refrigerator storage after reconstitution, it is not significant enough to noticeably reduce efficacy for the treatment of patients with BoNT-A.
