XEOMIN (zee-oh-min) is a treatment option for cervical dystonia and blepharospasm.
The active ingredient in XEOMIN is a type of botulinum toxin type A called incobotulinumtoxinA. Merz, the manufacturer of XEOMIN, uses a proprietary purification process to remove accessory proteins from botulinum toxin type A.
What are accessory proteins?
Accessory proteins are proteins that accompany the active neurotoxin and do not play an active role in treatment.
