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 ...


Safety and Tolerability Study of Levetiracetam to Treat Patients With Status Epilepticus

Status epilepticus (SE) is a disorder with high mortality and morbidity. There are strong indications that ongoing seizure activity substantially reduces the chances on a good outcome. This implies that optimal treatment of SE should start as soon as possible. Unfortunately, treatment options are limited and often based on little ...


Mapping of the Epileptic Brain

This study aims improving the outcome after brain resective surgery of epileptic patients by improving presurgical evaluations. In particular the specific goal is to evaluate the ability of non invasive neuroimaging (functional magnetic resonance imaging and electroencephalography) to provide presurgical maps of the functional areas of the brain and of ...

Phase N/A

Controlled Randomized Stimulation Versus Resection (CoRaStiR)

Patients will be prospectively randomized to 3 different treatment arms: - Treatment group 1: patients who undergo medial temporal lobe resection - Treatment group 2: patients who receive immediate hippocampal neurostimulation - Treatment group 3: patients who are implanted with an intracranial electrode but in whom hippocampal neurostimulation is delayed ...

Phase N/A

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. ...


Emotional Processing and Memory Evaluation in Epilepsy Patients

Epilepsy is a relatively common neurological disorder diagnosed when individuals suffer from repeated unprovoked seizures. Estimates of prevalence rates vary, but it is generally considered to be about 1% of the U.S. population. Of the patients diagnosed with epilepsy, about 60-70 percent are diagnosed with complex-partial seizures, and of these ...


Trial Comparing Different Stimulation Paradigms in Patients Treated With Vagus Nerve Stimulation for Refractory Epilepsy

Patients with refractory epilepsy who are candidates for a treatment with vagus nerve stimulation will be prospectively randomized into 3 arms with different vagus nerve stimulation paradigms. Vagus nerve stimulation parameters are programmed and adjusted during outpatient clinic visits, within the normal clinical practice.

Phase N/A

Phenobarbital Versus Valproate for Generalized Convulsive Status Epilepticus

After the failure of first-line diazepam treatment, patients with GCSE are randomized to receive either IV PB (standard doses, low rate) or VPA (standard). Successful treatment is considered when clinical and electroencephalographic seizure activity ceases. Adverse events following treatment and the neurological outcomes at discharge and 3 months later are ...


Pharmacokinetics of Anti-epileptic Drugs in Obese Children

The study is a prospective, multi-center, open-label clinical trial. Study's purpose is to characterize the pharmacokinetics and safety of four oral anti-epileptics drugs (levetiracetam, valproic acid [divalproex sodium ER or immediate release formulation if inadequate enrollment}, topiramate, and oxcarbazepine) in a non-randomized sample of obese children and adolescents. The study's ...

Phase N/A

Predictive Value of Biomarkers of the Alzheimer's Disease (AD) in Elderly Patients With New-onset Epilepsy

Beyond 60 years, the prevalence of epilepsy is estimated at approximately 1% and increases with age. In these patients, the etiology of epilepsy is unknown in 25% of cases, even up to 55% after 65 years. Although new-onset epilepsy in the elderly is associated with a vascular disease in 50% ...
