Date:6/8/2009

t-Batar, A., and Minnasch, P.

Method

Responder analysis of at least 1-point improvement from baseline to week 4 on the Disability Assessment Scale [DAS] for the primary therapeutic target after injection of a 20 U/mL dilution or 50 U/mL dilution was evaluated. After injection, observation over a 12-week period was followed by 8 weeks safety follow-up. Botulinum neurotoxin doses were derived from the recommendations from the organization WE MOVE. The individual injection pattern was adapted to patient's needs. A two-sided 95% Newcombe-Wilson confidence interval [CI] for the difference between groups was calculated.

Results

192 patients with upper limb spasticity caused by either stroke (88%), brain injury (5.7%), multiple sclerosis (0.5%) or cerebral palsy (1.6%) were randomized to the 50 U/mL dilution group (95 patients) or to the 20 U/mL dilution group (97 patients). Limb position (60.4%), Dressing (24.0%), Hygiene (9.4%) and Pain (6.3%) were chosen as primary therapeutic target on the DAS. The maximum injected total dose was 495 units NT 201. Four weeks after injection 57.1% of patients had an at least 1-point DAS reduction from the baseline score for their primary therapeutic target. No dilution group was inferior to each other regarding efficacy. 79.9% of patients and 89.0% of investigators reported an improvement in global assessment of efficacy at week 4. There were no relevant differences regarding safety between groups.
