XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA)

A Highly Purified Neurotoxin

What are accessory proteins?
Accessory proteins are proteins that accompany the active neurotoxin.

XEOMIN (zee-oh-min) is a treatment option for adults with upper limb spasticity, cervical dystonia, and blepharospasm.

State-of-the-art proprietary manufacturing process purifies botulinum toxin A into XEOMIN1

The active ingredient in XEOMIN is a type of botulinum toxin called incobotulinumtoxinA. Merz, the maker of XEOMIN, uses a proprietary purification process to remove accessory proteins from botulinum toxin A to make XEOMIN.1 The clinical significance of a lack of accessory proteins, including any impact on safety or efficacy, has not been established.
