New Botulinum Toxin Undergoing Clinic Trials: Daxibotulinumtoxina

More competition might be coming for Botox, Dysport and Xeomin.

Three cosmetic injectables are currently available in the market (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin). A fourth one is shaping up as the next competitor against the botulinum toxins. Revance Therapeutics Inc. is gearing up to produce the newest in the botulinum toxin market. The daxibotulinumtoxina is the newest to gain interest.

The neurotoxin is currently undergoing trials since early 2016. It claims that it will have a longer effect on the face against those available in the market. A 2011 study have found the effects of daxibotulinumtoxina for injection (RT002), which shows its efficacy and longevity.

How would this affect the three existing neurotoxins?

So far, Botox is the popular choice of neurotoxin, it being the first and proven effective for treatment of glabellar and lateral canthal lines. Xeomin and Dysport treats Cervical Dystonia and the glabellar lines. Many have expressed their concerns with the existing neurotoxins, most specifically with the possible side effects (e.g. ptosis).

Why does it matter?

Revance will include a peptide technology called: TRANSMTS in their (what they claim) a highly purified botulinum toxin to produce a longer-lasting effect. Aside from treating any aesthetic concern, daxibotulinumtoxina will also treat plantar fasciitis--- which is also undergoing study— and cervical dystonia. The neurotoxin will also come in a topical form.

Peptides have been used also for some cosmetics, with some calling it as an alternative to Botox having anti-aging effects for the face. Most studies regarding peptides are focused mostly on cosmetic products (i.e. make-up).

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin have been met with their own criticisms from patients and physicians. The daxibotulinumtoxina could be a game changer in the market. Trials are underway for the daxibotulinumtoxina. Not much can be said about the trials but so far, the sample has not experienced any serious or adverse effects. According to clinicaltrials.gov, the study for the efficacy of daxibotulinumtoxina will be released on 2018 at the latest.

I am not an expert in cosmetic surgery but, I wonder if creams, gels and ointment can gradually help to lessen the wrinkles.

I learn from a compounding pharmacy that actives are applied to this cosmetics too - Cosmetics Compounding
