ABSTRACT
This article presents a study, which states that in patients with stable multiple sclerosis (MS), cannabinoids are effective for reducing MS-related muscle spasticity. 657 patients from 18 to 64 years of age who had clinically definite or laboratory-supported MS with problematic spasticity, for the previous 6 months, were taken for the study. Exclusion criteria included ischemic heart disease, infection or use of medication that could exacerbate spasticity, fixed-tendon contractures, and severe cognitive impairment.
