Is there a direct antimicrobial effect of botulinum neurotoxin type A
BJU International, 08/17/2012
Wollner J et al. – Botulinum neurotoxin A (BoNT/A) has no direct antimicrobial effect. The reduced frequency of symptomatic urinary tract infections in patients with neurogenic detrusor overactivity after BoNT/A intradetrusor injections seems to be caused by different indirect mechanisms, which are still not completely understood.
