Abstract

A new botulinum toxin type A free of complexing proteins (NT 201) was compared with BOTOX in patients with cervical dystonia by means of a double-blind noninferiority trial. Four hundred sixty-three patients received IM injections of 70 to 300 U of NT 201 or BOTOX and were followed up over 16 weeks. The study clearly shows that NT 201 is at least as effective and safe as BOTOX.
