JCP Study of Investigation of Patient Background Characteristics
To collect the background characteristics of juvenile cerebral palsy patients aged 2-year or older prescribed BOTOX for the treatment of equines foot due to lower limb spasticity, compare them with those of patients whose deaths or adverse drug reactions (ADRs) related to the possible spread of toxin are reported through the spontaneous ADR reporting system, and discuss potential risk factors for such ADRs.

treatment of Equinus Foot due to Lower Limb Spasticity in Juvenile Cerebral Palsy Patients Aged 2-year or Older
- In each of prospective medical institutions (where BOTOX is expected to be prescribed annually to at least 10 juvenile cerebral palsy patients aged 2-year or older), the Medical Representative will explain the objectives, subjects and methods of the investigation to the prospective investigator (i.e., a physician who will prescribe BOTOX and can comply with the protocol of the investigation) and ask for his/her participation in the investigation.
- When the physician agrees to participate in the investigation, a written agreement will be concluded between GSK and the head (e.g. director) of the medical institution prior to the start of the investigation.
- After the completion of the investigation period, the physician will complete the case report form (CRF) for the patients prescribed BOTOX by him/her during the investigation period. The information of the patients who developed ADRs will be collected separately through the spontaneous ADR reporting system on a daily basis.
