Muscle Relaxant Injections Treatment History

At first, it was just a deadly toxin

  • In 1897, microbiologist Emil van Emingham identified a bacterium that causes intoxication. This happened after 34 musicians were poisoned at the funeral after eating homemade ham. Three of them died, and 10 were seriously ill. This microorganism was isolated from this ham and spleen of affected people. Earlier, Justinus Kerner, a German poet and medical writer, suggested that small doses of this bacterium toxin could be useful in the treatment of hyperkinesis.
  • So, in 1977, researcher Alan Scott began to conduct experiments on the use of this toxin in animals to reduce the activity of hyperkinetic muscles. The experiments were successful, the positive effect was proven, and the toxin-based drug was used in humans. Alan Scott gave the first injection to a strabismus patient.
  • This is how the history of Muscle Relaxant Injections began. First, it was used for treatment, then the pharmaceutical industry, introducing new methods of purifying the drug, increasing its safety, brought it to the masses.
  • In December 1989, Muscle Relaxant Injections began to be used to treat a range of conditions associated with involuntary muscle contractions. In the same year, the cosmetic effect of the drug was first recorded, and this happened almost by accident after one patient pointed out to her ophthalmologist Jane Carruthers that the toxin injections magically smoothed out wrinkles on the bridge of her nose.
  • In 1990, the Carruthers published the first positive results proving the high effectiveness of Muscle Relaxant Injections in the fight against wrinkles.
