Botox

KUHF-FM (88.7, Houston), November 20, 2010

<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt">&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt">Mention the word, Botox, and most people think it's Hollywood's cure to wrinkles. True, Botox can be a beauty treatment, but this bacterial toxin is actually being used to treat a number of serious health issues, report UTMB&rsquo;s Norbert Herzog and David Niesel in this week&rsquo;s installment of Medical Discovery News. Among the ailments being studied for treatment with Botox are overactive bladders, migraine headaches, and adult spasticity. Doctors already are using Botox for many other ailments such as chronic low back pain, traumatic brain injury, and stroke. Doctors in some countries outside the U.S. are also using it to treat juvenile cerebral palsy. <o:p></o:p></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
