We present results of a Phase 1 clinical study of an anti-toxin to BoNT serotypes C and D, NTM-1634, which consists of an equimolar mixture of four fully human IgG1 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), each binding to non-overlapping epitopes on BoNT serotypes C and D resulting in potent toxin neutralization in rodents. This first-in-human study evaluated the safety and pharmacokinetics of escalating doses of NTM-1634 administered intravenously to healthy adults (NCT03046550). Three cohorts of eight healthy subjects received a single intravenous dose of NTM-1634 or placebo at 0.33 mg/kg, 0.66 mg/kg or 1 mg/kg. Follow-up examinati...

In this study, three replicates of manure and digestate were collected from five farm biogas plants receiving animal manure in order to assess the occurrence and concentrations of sporulating (Clostridium botulinum,Clostridioides difficile,Clostridium perfringens) and nonsporulating (Listeria monocytogenes, thermotolerantCampylobacter spp.,Salmonella,Escherichia coli, enterococci) bacteria. Concentrations ofE. coli, enterococci, andC. perfringens in digestates ranged from 102 to 104, 104 to 105, and

Doesn’t it seem like Botox is showing up everywhere as a medical treatment? Botox is a brand of botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT), a protein substance originally derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In its original form it was the toxin responsible for botulism, the paralyzing illness often caused by eating contaminated food. BoNT is now used to treat a number of medical conditions including muscle spasms, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, and some eye muscle conditions. However, one of its most common uses is in the preventive treatment of chronic migraine. Chronic migraine, defined as headache occurrin...

Abstract This manuscript reports a case of intestinal toxemia botulism in an adult with recently diagnosed metastatic colon cancer in whom botulism symptoms began 23 days after hospital admission. Representing the rarest form of botulism presentation in clinical practice, this infectious disease may have developed due to a cluster of predisposing factors that favored Clostridium botulinum colonization and the endogenous production of neurotoxins, among which are previous use of broad-spectrum antibiotics and colon changes related to the development of the neoplasia. This case highlights the importance of consideri...

In this study, we administered ICR mice control saline, low-dose NaNO2 (60 mg/kg/day), or high-dose NaNO2 (120 mg/kg/day) by intragastric gavage for 21 days. We then assessed oocyte morphology, spindle-chromosome dynamics, mitochondrial distribution, ATP content, apoptotic cell numbers, DNA damage levels, histone modifications, reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels, and offspring survival. Results showed that NaNO2 treatment decreased oocyte number, impaired polar body extrusion, and increased zona pellucida thickness in oocytes. Furthermore, NaNO2 disrupted MII spindle integrity, caused abnormal mitochondrial...
