Shares in GW Pharmaceuticals received a much needed boost this morning after the Journal of Clinical Therapeutics published the results of a study which showed that Sativex(R) provided "effective long term treatment of neuropathic pain in Multiple Scherosis (MS)". The study also said that benefits of Sativex were obtained "without any evidence of tolerance to the medicine".

The results of the study are a boost for GW Pharma, which despite gaining approval for the use of Sativex(R) in Canada, is still attempting to gain access to the U.S. Market. The company said that a "pivotal" Phase III trail into MS neuropathic pain had recruited 339 patients. and would the be largest clinical trial to date. Results from the Phase III trial are expected in the first half of 2008.

Salvitex(R) is produced from two key ingredients derived from the cannabis plant.

Dr Stephen Wright, GW Pharma's R&D Director added "The results add to what we know from short-term clinical trials, and we look forward to seeing the results of our ongoing pivotal study in the same condition in the first half of next year."
