Sativex® approved in Sweden for the treatment of spasticity due to Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Porton Down, UK; 22nd December 2011: GW Pharmaceuticals plc (AIM:GWP) today announced that the Medical Products Agency in Sweden has granted regulatory approval for Sativex® (Delta-9-Tetrahydro-cannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD)) oromucosal spray as a treatment of moderate to severe spasticity due to MS in patients who have not responded adequately to other anti-spasticity medicationi. Sativex® is a first in class endocannabinoid system modulator and is currently available in the UK, Germany, Spain and Denmark.
Evidence generated from clinical trials shows that Sativex® has a positive impact on spasticity in multiple sclerosis, while alleviating associated symptoms including pain, bladder or sleep disturbance. By relieving the symptoms of MS, Sativex® can improve patients' quality of life and allow them greater independence in performing their daily activitiesii.
The launch of Sativex® in Sweden is expected to take place during the first half of 2012 following completion of the national pricing and reimbursement process. Sativex® will be marketed in Sweden by GW's marketing partner, Almirall S.A.
"Mafia-cannabionus" are at it again! Big time! Big manipulation here. Difficult to be patient and wait for the USA Phase 3 end stage cancer trial results in the New Year? Question is WHEN in 2012? Anybody have any ideas when?
Mr bob this has turned from an observation/opinion you made, to clear spitefulness. Your clearly doing what your doing for kicks. But never mind, this is a long term investment and i reitterate the word Long, Mr bob you are a trader, expecting high returns in the space of a day, so please stop acting like an investor and speculating seriously, because it seriously petulant behaviour.
