Reconstitution of botulinum toxins: preserved saline versus normal saline

Reconstitution of botulinum toxins: preserved saline versus normal saline AbstractThe three main aesthetic pharmaceutical companies in the UK (Allergan, Merz Pharma and Galderma) have all recommended that their botulinum toxin products should only be reconstituted with unpreserved saline. However, several recent studies have highlighted that, owing to the reduction of pain associated with injection, the vast majority of aesthetic nurses and doctors use preserved saline (Liu et al, 2012). In this article, the authors highlight the common practice of using bacteriostatic saline rather than following manufacturers’ summary of product characteristics to reconstitute botulinum toxins. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

AbstractThe three main aesthetic pharmaceutical companies in the UK (Allergan, Merz Pharma and Galderma) have all recommended that their botulinum toxin products should only be reconstituted with unpreserved saline. However, several recent studies have highlighted that, owing to the reduction of pain associated with injection, the vast majority of aesthetic nurses and doctors use preserved saline (Liu et al, 2012). In this article, the authors highlight the common practice of using bacteriostatic saline rather than following manufacturers’ summary of product characteristics to reconstitute botulinum toxins.
