For clinical consultation for a patient with suspected infant botulism, the patient's physician should contact the Infant Botulism Treatment and Prevention Program (IBTPP) on-call physician at (510) 231-7600 (24/7/365). To obtain BabyBIG® for a patient with suspect infant botulism, the physician must contact the IBTPP on-call physicians.

The decision to treat with BabyBIG® should be based on clinical presentation and findings and should not be delayed by waiting for results of laboratory confirmatory testing. Prompt treatment of infant botulism patients immediately ends their toxemia and enables motor nerve regeneration to begin.
