Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Botulinum toxins are widely used to improve diverse symptoms in humans. A PubMed search (botulinum, toxin, treatment; human) of the years 2018–2022 yielded a total of 4431 citations showing the immense importance for human health. This Special Issue will focus on the broad spectrum of botulinum toxins used in clinical treatments. We cordially invite you to present the latest research in the field of botulinum toxins´ application in your patients, highlighting known or even new indications for those toxins. In addition, reports are welcome, where patients did not profit from applications or dosages. Animal studies that provide a theoretical background for better knowledge of the mode of botulinum action will also be considered. We look forward to receiving your contributions.
