The object of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of zonisamide as adjunctive therapy in patients with uncontrolled partial epilepsy.
The object of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of zonisamide as adjunctive therapy in patients with uncontrolled partial epilepsy. Subject takes zonisamide for 16 weeks (4 weeks-titration period, 8 weeks maintenance period). Dose range of zonisamide is 100 ~ 400 mg/day and target dose is 300 mg/day. After 16 weeks, zonisamide efficacy is measured by seizure reduction rate (Each type of seizure: simple partial seizures [SPS], complex partial seizures [CPS], simple partial seizures evolving into generalized tonic-clonic convulsions [SGTC] and total seizure frequency), seizure free rate, responder rate, quality of life in epilepsy (QOLIE-31) and investigator's global evaluation scale. Safety of zonisamide in this study will be estimated by adverse event profile, retention rate and dose of exposure. The duration of this clinical study is 2 years including period of subject enrollment.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Zonisamide is already marketed for the treatment of partial seizures in epilepsy. This study is intended to provide evidence that zonisamide is safe and effective in the treatment of myocl...
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and tolerability in "real-world" clinical practice, of adjunctive zonisamide treatment in adult patients with developmental disabilities...
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of zonisamide with carbamazepine and to determine the optimum dose of zonisamide in patients with epilepsy.
Zonisamide (Zonegran) and sodium valproate (Epilim) are both medicines approved to treat epilepsy. The purpose of this study is to find out the extent to which zonisamide may affect memor...
The purpose of this study is to confirm the adjustment dosage of zonisamide as monotherapy in children with epilepsy.
This study conducted a systematic review evaluating the effectiveness of newer antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) (namely, lamotrigine, levetiracetam, topiramate, vigabatrin, zonisamide, oxcarbazepine, peramp...
CASE DESCRIPTION A 2-year-old neutered male domestic shorthair cat was evaluated for sudden onset of cluster seizures. CLINICAL FINDINGS At an emergency clinic, the cat had hyperimmunoglobulinemia and...
To characterize epilepsy in an elderly population and describe the prevalence of drug resistant epilepsy (DRE) using recently validated International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) criteria.
Perceived epilepsy stigma and reduced social well-being are prevalent sources of distress in people with epilepsy (PWE). Yet, research on patient-level correlates of these difficulties is lacking, esp...
Progressive myoclonic epilepsy (PME) is rare epilepsy syndrome. Although EEG is a useful neurophysiological technique in the evaluation of epilepsy, few EEG abnormalities have been described in PME. S...
A disorder characterized by the onset of myoclonus in adolescence, a marked increase in the incidence of absence seizures (see EPILEPSY, ABSENCE), and generalized major motor seizures (see EPILEPSY, TONIC-CLONIC). The myoclonic episodes tend to occur shortly after awakening. Seizures tend to be aggravated by sleep deprivation and alcohol consumption. Hereditary and sporadic forms have been identified. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p323)
A disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of paroxysmal brain dysfunction due to a sudden, disorderly, and excessive neuronal discharge. Epilepsy classification systems are generally based upon: (1) clinical features of the seizure episodes (e.g., motor seizure), (2) etiology (e.g., post-traumatic), (3) anatomic site of seizure origin (e.g., frontal lobe seizure), (4) tendency to spread to other structures in the brain, and (5) temporal patterns (e.g., nocturnal epilepsy). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p313)
An anticonvulsant effective in tonic-clonic epilepsy (EPILEPSY, TONIC-CLONIC). It may cause blood dyscrasias.
An autosomal dominant inherited partial epilepsy syndrome with onset between age 3 and 13 years. Seizures are characterized by PARESTHESIA and tonic or clonic activity of the lower face associated with drooling and dysarthria. In most cases, affected children are neurologically and developmentally normal. (From Epilepsia 1998 39;Suppl 4:S32-S41)
A subtype of epilepsy characterized by seizures that are consistently provoked by a certain specific stimulus. Auditory, visual, and somatosensory stimuli as well as the acts of writing, reading, eating, and decision making are examples of events or activities that may induce seizure activity in affected individuals. (From Neurol Clin 1994 Feb;12(1):57-8)
Epilepsy is defined as a disorder of brain function characterized by recurrent seizures that have a sudden onset. (Oxford Medical Dictionary). A seizure is caused by a sudden burst of excess electrical activity in the brain, causing a tempora...
