Levetiracetam is an antiepileptic drug with good tolerability that is used for focal and generalized epilepsy as well as acute treatment of status epilepticus; it is also a first-line antiepileptic drug for patients with concomitant medical conditions. The effect of blood levetiracetam concentration on its efficacy and safety in Japanese patients with epilepsy is unknown.
To compare the efficacy and tolerability of levetiracetam (LEV) versus valproate (VPA) monotherapy in adults with genetic generalized tonic-clonic seizures alone (GTCS) and juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME).
The objective of this trial was to compare the effectiveness of levetiracetam (LEV) and topiramate (TPM) as adjunctive treatment for patients with focal seizures in Korea.
While levetiracetam (LEV) usage is a known risk factor for psychosis in epilepsy, the modulating effect of certain patient and treatment characteristics on the risk of psychosis has yet to be fully elucidated.
Antiepileptic drug (AED) therapy is symptomatic. New AED:s have not decreased the proportion of epilepsy patients resistant to pharmacological treatment. Lamotrigine, levetiracetam and carbamazepine are first-line options for focal seizures. Lamotrigine, levetiracetam and valproic acid are first-line options for generalized seizures. However, valproic acid is contraindicated during pregnancy unless there is no other effective treatment available, as well as for fertile girls/women unless the conditions of a...
Antiseizure prophylaxis is required during busulfan administration for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. However, antiseizure agents such as benzodiazepines and phenytoin may produce adverse effects through interaction with other drugs. We retrospectively assessed the prophylactic efficacy and safety of levetiracetam and clonazepam against busulfan-induced seizures between 2013 and 2018. Thirty patients (after 2015) received levetiracetam, and 13 patients (before 2015) received clonazepam in this stu...
WAG/Rij rats represent a validated genetic animal model of epileptogenesis, absence epilepsy and depressive-like comorbidity. Some treatments (e.g. ethosuximide), using specific protocols, prevent the development of spontaneous absence seizures. Accordingly, ethosuximide increases remission occurrence in children with childhood absence epilepsy in comparison to valproic acid. Considering that in this animal model, antiepileptogenic effects are, in some cases, not retained over time, we studied whether the a...
The new anticonvulsant brivaracetam is a levetiracetam analog which binds to the synaptic vesicle protein 2A, and inhibits excitatory neurotransmitters' release. Brivaracetam was Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicine Agency (EMA) approved in 2016 as adjunctive treatment for focal onset seizures in patients over 16 years of age, and in 2018 for children over four years of age. Our aim was to describe effectiveness and tolerability in real-life pediatric epilepsy clinic.
Many aspects of epilepsy in mitochondrial disorders (MDs) need to be further clarified. To this aim, we explored retrospectively a cohort of individuals with MDs querying the "Nationwide Italian Collaborative Network of Mitochondrial Diseases" (NICNMD) database (1467 patients included since 2010 to December 2016). We collected information on age at epilepsy onset, seizure type and frequency, genetic findings, and antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). At the time of our survey, 147/1467 (10%) patients in the NICNMD da...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate differences in stigma, disclosure management of epilepsy, and knowledge about epilepsy between patients with epilepsy who recognized and did not recognize the new Korean term for epilepsy.
Clinical correlates of obsessive-compulsive symptoms (OCS) were evaluated in 100 adult consecutive outpatients with epilepsy, using the Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory (OCI-R), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES-II), and the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire (SPQ). Dimensional Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (DY-BOCS) was applied to determine the types and severity of OCS to the 45 patients with epilepsy who were over 21 points on the OCI-R scale and 30 patients wh...
The issue of epilepsy and driving has legal, social, and psychological implications. Many countries in the world restrict driving to people prone to epilepsy. There is no data from Saudi Arabia regarding the prevalence of driving among patients with epilepsy and their driving practices. In addition, to the best of our knowledge, there are no local laws or guidelines concerning driving for patients with epilepsy in Saudi Arabia. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of driving among male patients with...
Religiosity and spirituality (R/S) are widely regarded as important allies against illness and suffering in general. Findings in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) suggest the temporal lobe as the anatomical-functional basis of religious experiences. Both R/S are relevant in patients with epilepsy (PWE) since epilepsy can lead to psychosocial issues for a significant portion of patients and their families. To investigate R/S in PWE, as well as the impact of different epileptic syndromes on patients' R/S.
Biofeedback therapy using electrodermal activity (EDA) is a new noninvasive therapy for intractable epilepsy. However, the characteristics of EDA in patients with epilepsy are little known; therefore, we assessed the EDA characteristics in patients with epilepsy.
Clinical studies suggest that the antiepileptic drug (AED) brivaracetam (BRV) is associated with fewer behavioral and psychiatric adverse events (AEs) compared with levetiracetam (LEV) in treating epilepsy. There are, however, few comparative studies of treatment-emergent AEs between patients on BRV with preexisting psychiatric or behavioral comorbidities to those without. Our study compared longer-term tolerability over a 26-month period between these patient groups and assessed the overall efficacy of BRV...
Anxiety is a common neurological condition often comorbid with epilepsy, with approximately 20% of patients with epilepsy exhibiting symptoms of anxiety. Despite this prevalence, accurate and efficacious tools designed to screen for anxiety specifically in patients with epilepsy have not yet been developed. The purpose of this study is to systematically review the literature and better understand this relationship.
Epilepsy has a growing frequency, particularly in the elderly. Several triggers may cause late-onset epilepsy; however, more than 20% of epilepsies, manifesting in the elderly, has an unknown etiology. Although cognition is frequently altered in patients affected by epilepsy, there is a paucity of studies specifically evaluating cognition in patients affected by late-onset epilepsy. The aim of the present study was to assess the cognitive profile of patients affected by late-onset epilepsy with an unknown e...
The close relationship between epilepsy and autoimmune diseases and the fact that the cause of epilepsy is idiopathic in 60% of cases suggest that intestinal microbiota may play a role in the etiology of epilepsy. In this study, we analyzed and compared the intestinal microbiota composition of patients with idiopathic focal epilepsy (n = 30) and healthy volunteer group (n = 10) by 16s ribosomal DNA sequencing. Proteobacteria phylum was found to be higher in patients with epilepsy (25.4%) than in hea...
The use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is becoming increasingly prevalent both in general population and patients with chronic diseases. The aim of the study was to determine the prevalence, reasons, and factors influencing the use of CAM in Polish patients with epilepsy (PWE).
The purpose of the present study was to compare psychological distress between patients with epilepsy and healthy controls and to evaluate potentially related factors to psychological distress in patients with epilepsy. Furthermore, we assessed how psychological distress and other potential factors mediate illness perception in patients with epilepsy in an urban area of Northwest Greece.
Epilepsy is often associated with psychosocial comorbidity and this can be more disabling than the seizure activity. Still, these associated conditions are often underdiagnosed and therefore not sufficiently treated. We studied a large pediatric cohort of 371 patients with epilepsy to identify factors associated with negative outcome. We found that patients with early-onset epilepsy, epilepsy of known etiology, and polypharmacy were the most likely to display cognitive impairment. Behavioral problems were p...
Migraine and epilepsy are comorbid conditions. While it is well known that epilepsy can have an impact on cognitive abilities, there is conflicting evidence in the literature on the relationship between migraine and cognitive function. The aim of this study was to assess whether migraine comorbidity in patients with newly diagnosed focal epilepsy is associated with cognitive dysfunction.
Measurement of hair drug content may be a reliable biomarker of the history of drug exposure, allowing to assess patient long-term compliance. Studies on correlations between antiepileptic drugs intake and their hair contents are limited. The aim of the study was to determine the association between the history of levetiracetam administration and its content in rat hair in controlled laboratory conditions. Additionally, the effects of levetiracetam on hair growth rate and body weights were examined. Three g...
