Merz Pharmaceuticals Introduces Comprehensive Programs to Provide Patients With Financial Assistance for Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA)
Date:3/8/2011

itions like cervical dystonia and blepharospasm, and we are committed to helping people regardless of their financial or healthcare coverage status. We designed our assistance programs to be easy to navigate and to help alleviate patients' financial burdens for their XEOMIN treatment costs."

About DystoniaDystonias are movement disorders in which sustained muscle contractions cause twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal postures. These movements, which are involuntary and sometimes painful, may affect a single muscle (focal), a group of muscles such as those in the arms, legs, or neck (segmental), or even the entire body (generalized). Symptoms can be mild or severe and dystonias may be markedly disabling.

Although dystonia is thought to be rare, it is possibly undiagnosed or misdiagnosed due to lack of specific clinical criteria. While focal dystonia, such as blepharospasm or cervical dystonia can affect people at any age, most people first experience symptoms in middle age.

According to an epidemiology study conducted in Rochester, Minn., focal dystonia (which includes cervical dystonia, and may be characterized by twisting of the neck, and blepharospasm, or excessive eyelid spasm)is estimated to affect 295 per million people in the U.S.

About XEOMINIn nature, Clostridium botulinum produces the toxin in association with ancillary accessory proteins. Manufacturers utilize this naturally occurring protein complex to produce therapeutic botulinum toxin products. Merz has introduced XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA), manufactured using a proprietary process that isolates the therapeutic component and eliminates accessory proteins.

More than 84,000 patients have been treated with XEOMIN worldwide since 2005. The U.S. is the 20th country to approve XEOMIN for the treatment of cervical dystonia and blepharospasm.

XEOMIN is the only botulinum toxin that does not require refrigeration prior to reconstitution. XEOMIN
