Part Description

LP31258-4   Clostridium botulinum toxin A
Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum, an anaerobic, gram-positive, spore-forming rod found on plants, in soil, water and the intestinal tracts of animals. Eight exotoxins (A, B, C1, C2, D, E, F and G) have been identified, all of which interfere with neural transmission by blocking the release of acetylcholine, the principal neurotransmitter at the neuromuscular junction. The toxins are used in the clinical management of various spastic medical conditions, strabismus and focal dystonias, hemifacial spasms, headaches, hyper-salivation and hyperhidrosis. Type A is the most potent toxin. In 2002 it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for cosmetological uses. It is administered by injection into muscles or glands with the effects lasting approximately three months. Most patients require multiple treatments over many years and some develop tolerance to the injections due to the development of neutralizing antibodies to the toxin. Side effects are minor and transient. PMID: 20418969 Source: Regenstrief LOINC

Change Reason
The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.; Updated Answer list type from NORMATIVE to EXAMPLE because the Answers in the list (Positive, Negative) are only examples of possible answers and not an exclusive list
