Ipsen treatment gets a new indication in the US

Dysport, a drug of the French pharmaceutical group Ipsen against spasticity, now enjoys a new marketing authorization in the United States to treat the lower limbs in adults, the group said Friday.

Spasticity is a motor disorder equivalent to an involuntary increase in muscle tone, resulting in persistent stiffness of the muscles, spasms or contractures.

In the United States, Dysport already had several indications: cervical dystonia (spasmodic torticollis) since 2009, spasticity of the upper limbs in adults since 2015 and that of the lower limbs for children two years and older since 2016.

In its aesthetic applications as anti-wrinkle, Dysport, competitor of Allergan Botox, is distributed by the Swiss group of dermatology Galderma.
