GlobalData tracks drug-specific phase transition and likelihood of approval scores, in addition to indication benchmarks based off 18 years of historical drug development data. Attributes of the drug, company and its clinical trials play a fundamental role in drug-specific PTSR and likelihood of approval.

Muscle Spasticity overview

Muscle spasticity is a condition that causes muscles to contract, stiffen, or spasm involuntarily, affecting movement, speech, and gait. It is caused by damage or disruption to the nerve pathways that control muscle movement, usually due to brain or spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, or other diseases. Spasticity can range from mild to severe and can cause pain, deformity, fatigue, and difficulty performing daily tasks. Spasticity can be treated with physical therapy, medication, surgery, or other methods depending on the cause and severity of the condition.
