The mTOR signaling pathway has emerged as a possible therapeutic target for epilepsy. Clinical trials have shown that mTOR inhibitors such as everolimus reduce seizures in tuberous sclerosis complex patients with intractable epilepsy. Furthermore, accumulating preclinical data suggest that mTOR inhibitors may have anti-seizure or anti-epileptogenic actions in other types of epilepsy. However, the chronic use of rapalogs such as everolimus is limited by poor tolerability, particularly by immunosuppression, p...
The objective of this study was to assess for independent association of anxiety symptoms with epilepsy localization and other epilepsy-related and demographic factors in a large tertiary care adult epilepsy population.
Epilepsy occurs in 70-90% of patients with tuberous sclerosis complex. We aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of adjunctive everolimus for treatment-refractory seizures associated with tuberous sclerosis complex in paediatric patients enrolled in the EXIST-3 trial, a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomised, phase 3 study.
Early everolimus introduction and tacrolimus minimization after liver transplantation may represent a novel immunosuppressant approach. This phase 2, multicenter, randomized, open-label trial evaluated safety and efficacy of early everolimus initiation. Patients treated with corticosteroids, tacrolimus, and basiliximab, were randomized (2:1) to receive everolimus (1.5 mg bid) in day 8 and gradually minimize or withdraw tacrolimus when everolimus was stable >5 ng/mL, or to continue tacrolimus at 6-12 ng/mL. ...
Everolimus is the only FDA approved drug to treat renal angiomyolipoma or subependymal giant-cell astrocytomas (SEGA) in tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). Potential differences exist between patients with commercial and Medicaid insurance on everolimus use, however, there is limited information from the real-world. This study compared compliance and persistence of everolimus between commercial and Medicaid patients using the US claims data.
The purpose of this study was to identify the risk factors for everolimus discontinuation in kidney transplant recipients converted to everolimus with calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) minimization at a late post-transplant stage.
Cardiovascular comorbidities of epilepsy such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes are associated with myocardial infarction (MI). Little data on the development of subsequent cardiovascular disease (CVD) in persons with epilepsy (PWE) are available, with inconsistent findings regarding the association between epilepsy and subsequent MI. A higher risk of MI among adults (without prior MI) following epilepsy diagnosis compared with that among controls was hypothesized.
Patients with poorly controlled seizures are at elevated risk of epilepsy-related morbidity and mortality. For patients with drug-resistant epilepsy that is focal at onset, epilepsy surgery is the most effective treatment available and offers a 50-80% cure rate. Yet, it is estimated that only 1% of patients with drug-resistant epilepsy undergo surgery in a timely fashion, and delays to surgery completion are considerable. The aim of this study was to increase availability and decrease delay of surgical eval...
There is an elevated prevalence of anxiety disorders among people with epilepsy, and the comorbidity of anxiety in epilepsy is associated with adverse medical and psychosocial outcomes. Despite its importance, little is known about what psychosocial or epilepsy factors may be associated with the development of anxiety. The aim of this qualitative study was to determine what factors may explain why some people with epilepsy develop anxiety disorders and others do not.
The incidence of childhood and adolescence epilepsy varies in different areas and over time. Published reports in the Italian pediatric population are few and there is no information on the incidence of epilepsy using the new clinical definition of the disease signed by the International League Against Epilepsy. An increased risk of epilepsy is reported in subjects who presented with neonatal seizures (NS), but few population-based studies are available that compare incidence and age at onset of epilepsy in...
The EXIST-2 (NCT00790400) study demonstrated the superiority of everolimus over placebo for the treatment of renal angiomyolipomas associated with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) or sporadic lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM). This post hoc analysis of EXIST-2 study aimed to assess angiomyolipoma tumor behavior among patients who submitted to continued radiographic examination following discontinuation of everolimus in the noninterventional follow-up phase.
A low level of knowledge about epilepsy among health workers, a context of stigmatizing sociocultural beliefs, and a low availability of antiepileptic drugs in Lao People's Democratic Republic (PDR) are major gaps in the medical management of people with epilepsy in this country.
Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is a major contributor to epilepsy-related mortality. It is associated with nocturnal seizures and centrally mediated postictal cardiorespiratory dysfunction (CRD), but mechanisms and contributors remain poorly understood.
The majority of the 65 million people worldwide with epilepsy live in low- and middle-income countries. Many of these countries have inadequate resources to serve the large patient population affected by epilepsy. Panama is a middle-income country that currently has only 2 facilities that can provide basic epilepsy services and no epilepsy surgery services. To address this need, a group of Panamanian physicians partnered with U.S. epilepsy health care providers to test a hybrid epilepsy surgery program, com...
About 2.8 million TBI-related emergency department visits, hospitalizations and deaths occurred in 2013 in the United States. Post-traumatic epilepsy (PTE) can be a disabling, life-long outcome of TBI.
A real-life study on the implementation and effectiveness of exemestane plus everolimus per hospital type in patients with advanced breast cancer. A study of the Southeast Netherlands Advanced Breast Cancer registry.
We aimed to assess the implementation and effectiveness of exemestane plus everolimus treatment per hospital type in real-life, shortly after approval of everolimus.
Antiepileptic drug (AED) monotherapy is usually effective in 60% of the patients with epilepsy while the remaining patients have refractory epilepsy. This study compared treatment patterns (adherence, persistence, addition, and switching) associated with refractory and nonrefractory epilepsy.
Three-year Follow-up of the Randomized Comparison between Everolimus-eluting Bioresorbable Scaffold and Durable Polymer Everolimus-eluting Metallic Stent in Patients with ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (TROFI II Trial).
Patients with drug-resistant epilepsy (DRE) account for most of the burden of epilepsy, and they have poor prognosis in seizure control, higher morbidity, and mortality.
Epilepsy is a chronic medical disease and is associated with comorbid adverse somatic conditions due to epilepsy itself or its long-term treatment.
A high prevalence of epilepsy has been observed in several onchocerciasis-endemic countries, including Cameroon. However, little is known on the clinical presentations of the affected persons with epilepsy (PWE). A community-based study was conducted with the aim of describing the spectrum of seizures in selected onchocerciasis-endemic villages in Cameroon and documenting relevant medical history in patients with onchocerciasis-associated epilepsy (OAE).
A survey to assess the familiarity, attitudes, and knowledge about epilepsy was done using a questionnaire identical to the one used in 1999. Two hundred forty-six people participated in our survey in 2017 as compared with 214 in the 1999 survey. In terms of familiarity about epilepsy, 76% had heard or read about epilepsy, 55.7% had witnessed a seizure, and 35.8% knew someone with epilepsy (85%, 56%, and 36% respectively in 1999). Forty point five percent were not familiar with or did not know what to do if...
Most people with epilepsy live in low- or middle-income countries (LMICs) where there are relatively few doctors. Over 50% of people with epilepsy in these countries are untreated so other models of care are needed. In this report we evaluate a novel model of care.
