BOTOX(R) (onabotulinumtoxinA) Receives U.S. Food And Drug Administration Approval For The Treatment Of Overactive Bladder For Adults Who Have An Inadequate Response To Or Are Intolerant Of An Anticholinergic Medication

In addition to its therapeutic uses, the same formulation of BOTOX® with dosing specific to moderate to severe glabellar lines was approved by the FDA in 2002 under the trade name BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA). BOTOX® Cosmetic is indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows) associated with corrugators and/or procerus muscle activity in adult patients up to 65 years of age.

Since its first approval in 1989, BOTOX® has been recognized by regulatory authorities worldwide as an effective treatment for 26 different indications in approximately 85 countries, benefiting millions of patients worldwide.

In addition to the more than 22 years of clinical experience, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX® have been well-established in approximately 65 randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials and in approximately 15,000 patients treated with BOTOX® and BOTOX® Cosmetic in Allergan’s clinical trials. 6 Worldwide, approximately 35 million vials of BOTOX® and BOTOX® Cosmetic have been distributed over the past 21 years (1990-2011). 7

With approximately 2,500 articles on BOTOX® and BOTOX® Cosmetic in scientific and medical journals, 8 BOTOX® neurotoxin is one of the most widely researched medicines in the world.
