Contradicative effects of Botulinum Toxin type A indicated in animal studies
Prof. Dr. Can A. Yücesoy has been studying the effects of Botulinum Toxin type A (Botox) on muscle under several TÜBİTAK grants. In the BME Biomechanics Laboratory using experimental and computational research this team has shown several previously unknown major effects of Botox on muscle function and some important changes in muscle structure. One aim is to develop methodologies to remove effects, which may not agree with the treatment aims. See more on this research (in Turkish, in the article published in Milliyet).
