A veil of secrecy surrounding the disease has resulted in myths, superstitions, and a general lack of knowledge. This has impeded scientific progress toward finding answers to one of the oldest-known and most prevalent neurological diseases, leaving treatment and research efforts in the dark ages. Historically, epilepsy has been neglected, feared, and misunderstood.

New indication for VIMPAT (lacosamide): UCB's anti-epileptic drug approved by FDA as monotherapy in the treatment of patients with partial-onset seizures.

In addition, for many soldiers suffering traumatic brain injury on the battlefield, epilepsy will be a long-term consequence.

Potential Drug Discovered for Severe Form of Epilepsy

Scott Baraban, PhD, and his team found that an antihistamine may help prevent a form of childhood epilepsy called Dravet Syndrome.

An antihistamine discovered in the 1950s to treat itching may also prevent seizures in an intractable form of childhood epilepsy, according to researchers at UC San Francisco who tested it in zebrafish bred to mimic the disease.

The researchers said their unexpected discovery offers a glimmer of hope for families of children with Dravet Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that manifests in early childhood with disabling, lifelong consequences.

Discovery offers new treatment for epilepsy -- ScienceDaily

The study tested a range of fatty acids found in the ketogenic diet against an established epilepsy treatment. Researchers found that not only.

Although often effective, the diet has attracted criticism, as side effects can be significant and potentially lead to constipation, hypoglycaemia, retarded growth and bone fractures. The high fat, low carbohydrate diet is thought to mimic aspects of starvation by forcing the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. The discovery could lead to the replacement of the ketogenic diet, which is often prescribed for children with severe drug-resistant epilepsy.

By pinpointing fatty acids in the ketogenic diet that are effective in controlling epilepsy, researchers hope that they can develop a pill for children and adults that could provide similar epilepsy control, but lacks the side effects of the diet.

ScienceDaily features breaking news and videos about the latest discoveries in health, technology, the environment, and more -- from major news services and leading universities, scientific journals, and research organizations.

The research also builds on work funded by the NC3Rs in which most of the animal testing normally used in drug development for epilepsy has been replaced by using a simple amoeba to initially screen and identify improved treatments.
