Efficacy of Modified Ketogenic Diet (Atkins) in Management of Epilepsy

In the management of drug-resistant epilepsy, many strategies have been examined. The Ketogenic Diet, high in fats and low in all other nutrients was observed to be of benefit. However, due to its complexedness and unpalatability, this diet is rarely used in the adult population. A recent small study showed ...

Phase N/A

Intrinsic Optical Imaging Study to Map Neocortical Seizure in Human Epilepsy Patients

Epilepsy is a disease affecting 1-2% of the population. Currently, the only known cure for epilepsy is surgery, which is much more effective at eliminating seizures arising from the medial temporal lobe compared with the neocortex. The problem with neocortical epilepsy is that the population of neurons underlying each epileptiform ...

A Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Brivaracetam as Treatment for Increased Seizure Activity in an Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Setting

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of intravenous brivaracetam (BRV) compared to intravenous lorazepam (LZP) in subjects with epilepsy undergoing Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) evaluation who experience seizures that require prompt treatment.


Epi-collect: Data Collection During Video EEG Monitoring and at Patient's Home

Epilepsy is a group of neurological disorders characterized by propensity for spontaneous epileptic seizures. Epileptic seizures are the result of excessive and abnormal nerve cell activity in the brain. About 0.7-1% of the world population suffers from seizures. The most common treatment is based on seizure medications that enables about ...

A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Adjunctive Brivaracetam in Asian Subjects (>=16 to 80 Years of Age) With Epilepsy

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of brivaracetam (BRV) compared to placebo (PBO) as adjunctive treatment in Asian subjects (>=16 to 80 years of age) with partial seizures with or without secondary generalization despite current treatment with 1 or 2 concomitant antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and to ...


A Study of a Drug to be Used in Addition With Another Drug to Treat Adults With Uncontrolled Partial-onset Seizures

This is a 31-week, multicenter, 2-arm, prospective, open-label, non-randomized, Phase 4 study of eslicarbazepine acetate (ESL) as adjunctive therapy in adult subjects with a diagnosis of epilepsy with POS. Two groups of ESL-naïve subjects will be evaluated. The groups are defined as follows: - Arm 1 (ESL as first add-on): ...
