A New Study in Treatment of Blepharospasm

Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 (AH8)

 

 

A New Study in Treatment of Blepharospasm by National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).

Blepharospasm is caused by excessive contraction of the muscles that close the eye. It can be treated with injections of botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT), which works by weakening those muscles.

Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 (AH-8) is the active ingredient in a number of cosmetic creams used to treat wrinkles, and is marketed under the trade name Argireline(Copyright). Like BoNT, AH-8 works to weaken the muscles, but is available as a skin cream instead of an injection. AH-8 has never been used to treat people with blepharospasm.

Objectives:

- To determine if AH-8 can be used as part of a treatment regimen for blepharospasm.
