The study will evaluate Apitox, pure honeybee venom as a treatment for pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis of the knee.
To evaluate the efficacy of Lyophilized amniotic fluid as compared to the Saline Injection, placebo control in the treatment of moderate osteoarthritis of the knee.
The primary purpose of this study is to determine whether a single ultrasound-guided intra-articular injection of botulinum toxin A associated to splinting is effective in reducing pain at...
Introduction: Osteoarthritis of the knee is a very common disease. However there are few treatment options for these patients. Botulinum toxin type A is an option for chronic pain. If the ...
The safety and efficacy of PurTox, Botulinum Toxin Type A, Purified Neurotoxin, injected intramuscularly into the neck, is being evaluated as a treatment for painful and non-painful spasmo...
The marine yeast strain Metschnikowia saccharicola DD21-2, isolated from sediments in the Yalu River, produces a killer toxin with a lethal effect on Metschnikowia bicuspidate strain WCY, a pathogenic...
Recent studies have suggested that intra-articular injection of botulinum toxin A (BTA) may have analgesic effects in degenerative joint diseases. We aim to assess the efficacy of intra-articular inje...
Safe and effective antitoxins to treat and prevent botulism are needed for biodefense. We have developed recombinant antibody-based therapeutics for botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) serotypes A, B, and E. ...
The honeybee is one of the most valuable insect pollinators, which plays a key role in pollinating wild vegetation and agricultural crops, with significant contribution to world food production. Altho...
Mast cells (MCs) play a crucial role in mediating the establishment of networks among the circulatory, nervous and immune system at acupoints. However, the changes which occur in MCs during acupoint s...
Drugs that bind to but do not activate histamine receptors, thereby blocking the actions of histamine or histamine agonists. Classical antihistaminics block the histamine H1 receptors only.
Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).
A 150 kDa neurotoxic protein produced by CLOSTRIDIUM BOTULINUM. When consumed in contaminated food it can cause paralysis and death. In its purified form, it has been used in the treatment of BLEPHAROSPASM and STRABISMUS.
A class of histamine receptors discriminated by their pharmacology and mode of action. Histamine H3 receptors were first recognized as inhibitory autoreceptors on histamine-containing nerve terminals and have since been shown to regulate the release of several neurotransmitters in the central and peripheral nervous systems.

A toxin produced by certain pathogenic strains of ESCHERICHIA COLI such as ESCHERICHIA COLI O157. It shares 50-60% homology with SHIGA TOXIN and SHIGA TOXIN 1.
