About Dystonia

Dystonias are neurological 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. With focal dystonia, such as blepharospasm or cervical dystonia, 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 XEOMIN

In 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.  Now Merz introduces XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA) which employs a proprietary manufacturing process that isolates the therapeutic component and eliminates these accessory proteins.

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