Safety, efficacy and kinetics of perampanel as therapy in adolescents with partial seizures

Description:
Seizures are abnormal electrical impulses in the brain. The signs and symptoms of seizures vary depending on the type of seizure a patient has. This study is looking at the use of perampanel in adolescents that have partial-onset seizures that are not currently controlled

Medication Under Study:
Perampanel (E2007)

Full study title:
A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Parallel-group Study With an Open-label Extension Phase to Evaluate the Effect of Perampanel (E2007) on Cognition, Growth, Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetics When Administered as an Adjunctive Therapy in Adolescents (12 to less than 18 years of age) With Inadequately Controlled Partial-onset Seizures

IRB Study ID:
100906


Who may qualify:

Adolescent patients, 12-18 years of age, that have been diagnosed with partial-onset seizures currently being treated with other antiepileptic medications
