Clobazam Adjunctive Treatment of Adults With Refractory Focal Epilepsy

Approximately 35 % of patients with epilepsy do not respond to treatment with medications. There is a need for new treatment of refractory focal epilepsy. Clobazam was approved in 2011 in the US for treatment of refractory seizures in patients with Lennox Gastaut syndrome (LGS). Patients with LGS have different ...

Efficacy and Safety of Intramuscular Midazolam Compared to Buccal Midazolam in Pediatric Seizures

Both buccal and intramuscular midazolam have been used to control seizures with variable succuss rates and side effects. In this study the investigators are going to assign patient randomly to receive either buccal or intramuscular midazolam. Then will compare both efficacy and side effect in both groups.

Phase

Comparison of the Cognitive and Behavioral Effects of Eslicarbazepine Acetate and Carbamazepine in Healthy Adults

This study is a double-blind, randomized, two period crossover design. The study consists of 6 visits over a 21 week period. Forty six (46) normal healthy subjects will be treated with both Eslicarbazepine acetate (ESL, 800 mg/day) and Carbamazepine (CBZ, 800mg/day) for 6 weeks and 3 days each (maintenance 4 ...

Compare Tolerability of an Overnight Switch to Gradual Switch Between Two Different Forms of Depakote

Twenty patients will be randomily assigned to convert overnight (10 pts) or over six days (10 pts). Side effects will be formally evaluated by the UKU side effect rating scal which will be done 7 days before conversion (day -7), the day of conversion (day 0)and then at the start ...

Phase

Vision Testing in Patients With Partial Seizures Receiving Either Lyrica or Placebo

Patients with partial seizures currently taking 1-3 antiepileptic medications will have a 50:50 chance to receive Lyrica 300 mg per day or placebo (no active ingredients) added on to their current medications for 3 months. Neither the study doctor nor the patient will know the medication assignment. Vision testing will ...

Correlation Between SV2A Expression in Tumour Tissue and Efficacy of Levetiracetam in Glioma Patients With Epilepsy

Levetiracetam is a relatively novel anti-epileptic drug (AED), which has proven to be effective and well tolerated in many glioma patients with otherwise pharmacoresistant epilepsy. Moreover, levetiracetam has neither enzyme-inducing nor enzyme-inhibiting properties, which makes the drug particularly attractive for brain tumour patients, as they frequently receive chemotherapy and/or corticosteroids. ...

Does Short-Term Anti-Seizure Prophylaxis After Traumatic Brain Injury Decrease Seizure Rates?

The efficacy of anti-seizure prophylaxis in head injury patients remains controversial. Current recommendations for the use of anti-seizure prophylaxis are based upon a single institution study that has not been reproduced with other studies contradicting their conclusions. The proposed study will be a randomized prospective study at Loyola University Medical ...

Phase

Use of Clobazam for Epilepsy and Anxiety

This study is an open label, adjunctive, proof of concept, pilot clinical trial. Pediatric patients with epilepsy and clinically significant anxiety will be recruited and if enrolled will receive active treatment, involving flexible dose titration of clobazam and will be monitored for a period of four months. The study will ...

Effects on the Diagnostic Accuracy of Magnetic Imaging Angiographies of the Supra-Aortic Vessels by Three Different Magnetic Resonance Contrast Agents in Patients

Angiographies of the supra-aortic vessels by magnetic imaging have become common recently. So it was the purpose of this study to evaluate the imaging potential of different contrast agents. Three contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging are compared in angiographies of the supra-aortic arteries in a intraindividual study of 10 ...

Hormone Profiles in Adults With Newly Diagnosed Epilepsy

Sodium valproate is an established antiepileptic drug used against a broad range of seizure types. Lamotrigine, a newer antiepileptic drug available since late 1980s, has a similar range of action and is approved as first-line treatment for epilepsy in the United States and many European countries as well as in ...
