Almirall S.A. announced that results of the MObility ImproVEments with Spasticity in Multiple Sclerosis (MOVE) 2 observational study performed in Germany, with 300 patients, showed that one month's treatment with Sativex®(THC:CBD) oromucosal spray reduces moderate to severe multiple sclerosis spasticity (MSS) by 20% or more in 4 out of 10 patients previously unresponsive to conventional therapies.
