Short abstract and comments

BIAL – Portela & Cª, S.A. is performing a confirmatory phase III study to assess the efficacy and safety of eslicarbazepine Acetate as adjunctive therapy in children and adolescents with refractory partial epilepsy. As cognitive co-morbidity is of particular concern in children with epilepsy, due to the impact on learning and psychosocial interaction, a second pediatric study is being conducted in children and adolescents with refractory partial-onset seizures to assess the cognitive effects and safety of adjunctive eslicarbazepine acetate. Cognitive effects will be assessed using the UBC System, a validated cognitive test battery, and will be related to the developmental changes and disease progression occurring in the study population.
