Further study details as provided by Ipsen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the effectiveness of 3 doses of Dysport (5, 10 or 15 Units/Kg/hip) in the management of chronic bilateral hip pain due to cerebral palsy in children/young people.
  • The primary endpoint will be the change in score in the Paediatric Pain Profile. [ Time Frame: From baseline to the week 4 assessment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the effectiveness of 3 doses of Dysport (5, 10 or 15 Units/Kg/hip) in the management of hip pain as assessed by the change in the score of the Paediatric Pain Profile at all other assessment time points. [ Time Frame: Weeks 12, 16 and 20 ]
  • To compare the effect of the different doses of Dysport on sleep pattern and quality as assessed using a sleep diary and sleep questionnaire at all assessment time points. [ Time Frame: Weeks 4, 12, 16 and 20 ]
  • To compare the effect of the different doses of Dysport on oral analgesia intake for hip pain at all assessment time points. [ Time Frame: Weeks 4, 12, 16 and 20 ]
