  Purpose

The study will assess the effect of treatment with prolonged-released fampridine 10 mg twice daily in MS patients on self-assessed walking ability. The effect will be evaluated over 24 weeks. Another purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of prolonged-release fampridine.

Placebo Comparator: Placebo Other: Placebo
Twice daily, given orally

Detailed Description:

The primary objective of the study is to explore the effect of prolonged-released fampridine 10 mg twice daily in patients with Multiple Sclerosis with walking disability. The change of walking ability will be measured using Multiple Sclerosis Walking Scale-12 (MSWS-12) to further elucidate the clinical relevance of changes over 24 weeks treatment duration. Another purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of prolonged-release fampridine.

Approximately 120 patients MS will be randomized over 20 sites worldwide. Duration of patient's participation in the study will be approximately 28 weeks.
