Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Rajesh Lalchandani, Consultant Medical Director said, “Illustrating our continued commitment to bring out the best possible treatment for the people suffering from neurological deficits in India, we have launched Botulinum Toxin Type A injection ‘Zarbot’. With its biological potency similar to international brands ‘Zarbot’ complies with European and British Pharmacopeial standards.”
‘Zarbot’ is an effective option for treating certain neurological conditions which can be more challenging with conventional therapy. It comes in a unique pack with 10 ml Normal saline to improve compliance and can be stored at 2-8 °C for 36 months or 25 °C for 6 months before reconstitution and also stable up to 14 days at 2-8 °C after reconstitution and multiple withdrawal of injection solution from vial under aseptic precautions.
