Brief Summary:
This study will be conducted to evaluate the effect of multiple doses of nabiximols compared with placebo on a clinical measure of velocity-dependent muscle tone in the lower limbs (Lower Limb Muscle Tone-6 [LLMT-6]) in participants with multiple sclerosis (MS). LLMT-6 is defined as the average of the 6 individual Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS)-transformed scores of knee flexors, knee extensors, and plantar flexors on both sides of the body.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Spasticity With Multiple Sclerosis Drug: Nabiximols Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Each period of this multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 2-treatment, 2-period, crossover trial includes a 7-day Baseline period, a 3-week treatment period (comprising a 2-week titration phase and a 1-week maintenance phase).

Eligible participants will enter the 7-day baseline period of each treatment period. During baseline, participants will maintain their optimized oral MS antispasticity medication regimen and record their 11-point Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) spasticity score and spasm count using an electronic daily diary. On Day 1, eligible participants will be randomized to 1 of 2 treatment sequences, each composed of 2 treatment periods, with administration of multiple doses of nabiximols or placebo in a 1:1 ratio.

Participants will be advised to titrate the investigational medicinal product (IMP), beginning with 1 spray/day, to an optimized dose or to a maximum of 12 sprays/day over the first 14 days of treatment. Participants should continue at the same dose level achieved at the end of the titration phase ±1 spray divided into a morning dose and an evening dose for the remainder of the treatment period.

Lower limb muscle tone, health-related quality of life, safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics will be evaluated during the treatment period.

Participants who complete the trial will participate for a total of approximately 11 weeks (77 days), including the 7-day baseline period.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Nabiximols
Nabiximols is a complex botanical medicine formulated from extracts of the cannabis plant that contains the principal cannabinoids delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) and also contains minor constituents, including other cannabinoid and non-cannabinoid plant components, such as terpenes, sterols, and triglycerides. Study dependent: Each spray delivers 100 microliters (μL) of nabiximols. A pre-determined number of sprays, but no less than 4 sprays, of nabiximols will be self-administered by participants as an oromucosal spray, under supervision of trial staff during 2 study visits to the trial site after they temporarily discontinued treatment with prescribed nabiximols (Sativex) as part of their regular medication.
Drug: Nabiximols

Other Names:
  • GW-1000-02
  • Sativex

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo to match nabiximols is presented as an oromucosal spray containing the excipients ethanol and propylene glycol (50% v/v) with colorings and flavored with peppermint oil (0.05% v/v). Each spray delivers 100 μL containing no active ingredients.
