WHO IS NEEDED?
To pre-qualify for this study, the participant must:
• Be 18-80 years of age
• Have had a stroke at least 3 months ago
• Have muscle tightness (spasticity) in the shoulder and elbow due to stroke
• Weigh at least 110 pounds
• Additional criteria apply, including prior injection time constraints

WHAT IS INVOLVED IF I PARTICIPATE?
Duration: There are up to 9 office visits over a period of approximately 20 weeks.
Tests/procedures: Physical exams, vital signs, an ECG test to trace heart rhythm, urine tests, blood draws, and questionnaires. The study drug is administered by injections in the shoulder and elbow areas.
Risks: Risks will be discussed with volunteers as part of the informed consent process.
Benefits: Participation may help future patients with post-stroke spasticity. 
Compensation: Volunteers will be compensated for study participation.
