A New York Plastic Surgery practice has pled guilty to misleading the public. It used a botulinum toxin called “Tritox” produced by an Arizona company called Toxin Research International Inc on people who believed they were receiving Allergan’s Botox product. It turns out this “Tritox” substance was not FDA approved. It was not even approved for use in humans.
I have been asked to review such a case here in California for our medical board. From what I hear, we will likely be seeing more of these prosecutions in the coming months. This New York practice got off light.
