We are carrying out an important clinical trial of a new treatment for people with Multiple Sclerosis related spasticity. Spasticity is a symptom of MS that causes your muscles to
feel stiff, heavy and difficult to move, as well as spasms.

To be eligible for this trial you need to be:

  • You are aged between 18 and 70 (inclusive)
  • You have a confirmed diagnosis of MS: relapsing remitting MS (RRMS), secondary progressive MS (SPMS) or primary progressive MS (PPMS)
  • You have experienced spasticity for a minimum of 3 months
  • You are not currently taking any medication for spasticity
  • Are able to walk 20 metres unassisted or with a walking aid
  • We cannot promise the study will help you but the information we get might help improve
    the treatment of people with MS and the management of spasticity.

Study info

  • This study is taking place at Croydon University Hospital in South London.
  • In total there will be 12 scheduled visits to our unit and participation in the study will last approximately 72 days (10 weeks and 2 days).
  • Travel expenses can be reimbursed throughout the trial and we can provide overnight accommodation during consecutive visits if required.
