|Title||Effect of cannabinoids on spasticity and ataxia in multiple sclerosis.|
|Author(s)||Meinck HM, Schönle PW, Conrad B|
|Journal, Volume, Issue||Journal of Neurology 1989;236(2):120-122|
|Major outcome(s)||improvement of tremor, spasticity and ataxia|
|Indication||Multiple sclerosis; Spasticity; Ataxia||Abstract|
The chronic motor handicaps of a 30-year-old multiple sclerosis patient acutely improved while he smoked a marihuana cigarette. This effect was quantitatively assessed by means of clinical rating, electromyographic investigation of the leg flexor reflexes and electromagnetic recording of the hand action tremor. It is concluded that cannabinoids may have powerful beneficial effects on both spasticity and ataxia that warrant further evaluation.
