Researchers sought to examine the relationship between air pollution exposure and the occurrence of epileptic seizures.
In a prospective, cross-sectional study, researchers assessed gait and motor disturbances among adult patients with Dravet syndrome.
In a systematic review, researchers reported on the presence of antiseizure medications in the breast milk of women with epilepsy and potential infant exposure to those who were breastfed.
Antiseizure medication (ASM) plus vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is associated with lower annual hospital costs over time for pediatric patients with refractory epilepsy compared to ASM alone.
Researchers sought to evaluate the long-term outcomes of transient epileptic amnesia in relation to seizure control, memory, medical comorbidities, and life expectancy.
Individuals with posttraumatic epilepsy (PTE) are more likely to have drug-resistant epilepsy (DRE), and they report lower quality of life.
Daily oral perampanel is generally well tolerated, with favorable retention rates among patients with epilepsy aged 1 to younger than 18 years.
In a case-control study, researchers compared clinical and EEG characteristics between patients with antiseizure medication (ASM)-resistant idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) and ASM-responsive IGE.
In a global, phase 3 trial, researchers evaluated the efficacy of ganaxolone as an adjunctive treatment compared to placebo for major motor seizures in patients with CDKL5 deficiency disorder.

Nitin K. Sethi, MD, MBBS, and Gaston C. Baslet, MD, discuss the importance of distinguishing psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) from epilepsy and the challenges of managing PNES.
Researchers sought to identify early posttraumatic seizure (EPS) risk factors, evaluate the morbidity and mortality involved with EPS, and develop a risk assessment prediction model for EPS.
Researchers sought to evaluate whether the use of intensive, stepwise antiseizure therapy and sedative treatment to suppress rhythmic and periodic EEG patterns detected with the use of continuous EEG monitoring would improve outcomes among patients in a comatose state following cardiac arrest.
Early posttraumatic seizures (EPS) after moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) are associated with poor outcomes.
