A new study, conducted by researchers at the University of Melbourne in Australia, showed that Botox can be used to help relieve asthma symptoms in those suffering from it. In the first experiment of its kind, Australian researchers injected Botox directly into the vocal cords of some asthma patients who were having difficulty catching their breath. This reduced their asthma symptoms for 3 months.
These patients also suffered from a health problem that causes disruption of the vocal cords, which causes muscle spasm, making breathing more difficult.
Botox partially paralyzes the muscles, allowing them to relax and making breathing easier.
It is noteworthy that there are many uses for Botox, called botalnum toxin, such as removing wrinkles, treating migraines, etc. However, according to the Daily Telegraph, this is the first time it has been used to relieve asthma symptoms.
