Clinical Trial: Perampanel


Study of Perampanel as Adjunctive Treatment for Inadequately Controlled Seizures Associated With Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome.   ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02834793

Inclusion Criteria:
•    Participants must have a diagnosis of Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS) as evidenced by:
•    more than one type of generalized seizure, including drop seizures (atonic, tonic, or myoclonic) for at least 6 months before Visit 1;
•    an EEG reporting diagnostic criteria for LGS at some point in their history (abnormal background activity accompanied by slow, spike, and wave pattern <2.5 Hz).
•    At least 2 years old at the time of consent.
•    Have been <11 years old at the onset of LGS.
•    At least 2 drop seizures per week in the 4-week Baseline Period preceding randomization.
•    Receiving 1 to 3 concomitant AEDs at a stable dose for at least 30 days before Visit 1 (vagal nerve stimulation (VNS) and ketogenic diet do not count as AEDs).

Exclusion Criteria:
•    Presence of progressive neurological disease
•    Presence of drop seizure clusters where individual seizures cannot be reliably counted (seizure clusters are defined as ≥2 drop seizures with <5 minutes between any 2 consecutive seizures)
•    Prior treatment with perampanel with discontinuation due to safety issues (related to perampanel)
•    Prior treatment with perampanel must have been discontinued at least 30 days before Visit 1
•    Evidence of clinically significant disease (eg, cardiac, respiratory, gastrointestinal, renal disease, hepatic disease) that in the opinion of the investigator(s) could affect the participant’s safety or study conduct
•    Scheduled for epilepsy-related surgery or any other form of surgery during the projected course of the study
•    Ketogenic diet and VNS, unless stable and ongoing, for at least 30 days before Visit 1
