The purpose of this study is to determine whether Eslicarbazepine acetate (BIA 2-093)is an effective adjunct therapy in the treatment of refractory partial seizures
The efficacy of Eslicarbazepine acetate (BIA 2-093)will be evaluated at doses of 800 mg and 1200 mg once daily over a 12-week maintenance period.
This is a 2-part study. Part I will follow a parallel-group, randomised, placebo-controlled design and will consist of an 8-week baseline period, followed by a double-blind 2-week titration period and a 12-week maintenance period. At the end of the 8-week baseline period, patients will be randomly assigned to one of three treatment groups in a 1:1:1 ratio: Placebo (Group 1; n=120), Eslicarbazepine acetate 800 mg QD (Group 2; n=120) and Eslicarbazepine acetate 1200 mg QD (Group 3; n=120).
Patients who complete Part I may enter a 1-year open-label extension (Part II) with Eslicarbazepine acetate, starting with a dose of 800 mg QD for one month. Thereafter, investigators can titrate the dose upwards or downwards.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Megestrol acetate is a progestogen with actions and uses similar to those of the progestogens in general. It also has anti-androgenic properties. It is given by mouth in the palliative treatment or as an adjunct to other therapy in endometrial carcinoma and in breast cancer. Megestrol acetate has been approved to treat anorexia and cachexia.
