Upper Limb Spasticity, Excluding Spasticity Caused by Cerebral Palsy

XEOMIN for Pediatric Upper Limb Spasticity Excluding Spasticity Caused by Cerebral Palsy

Signs and symptoms of Pediatric Upper Limb Spasticity.

In children with upper limb spasticity, there is an imbalance of signals from the brain to the muscles, which causes stiffness and spasms. This can lead to abnormal arm or hand positions, uncomfortable movement, and pain.1

How XEOMIN® works.

XEOMIN is injected into muscles to help interfere with these signals. This helps decrease muscle stiffness and improve your child's ability to function using the affected muscles.2

Effects of XEOMIN®.

Some stiffness and spasms may still occur, but in most patients less severely.

*Functional improvement was measured using the Global Impression of Change Scale (GICS), a global measure of a patient's functional improvement.

†Clinical patterns treated were flexed elbow, flexed wrist, forearm pronators, clenched fist, and thumb-in-palm over 4 injection cycles.
