Sativex® and clinical-neurophysiological measures of spasticity in progressive multiple sclerosis.

“Despite the proven efficacy of Sativex® (9-delta-tetrahydrocannabinol plus cannabidiol) oromucosal spray in reducing spasticity symptoms in multiple sclerosis (MS), little is known about the neurophysiological correlates of such effects.

The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of Sativex on neurophysiological measures of spasticity (H/M ratio) and corticospinal excitability in patients with progressive MS.

This was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study…

Our findings confirm the clinical benefit of Sativex on MS spasticity.”
