Botulinum neurotoxin serotypes A and B (BoNT/A & B) are highly effective medicines to treat hyperactive cholinergic neurons. Due to neutralizing antibody formation, some patients may become non-responders. In these cases, the serotypes BoNT/C-G might become treatment alternatives. BoNT/D is genetically least related to BoNT/A & B and thereby circumventing neutralisation in A/B non-responders. We produced BoNT/D and compared its pharmacology with BoNT/A _ex vivo_ in mice tissue and _in vivo_ in human volunteers.
