Summary

This study will compare pregabalin and leveracitam in patients with partial seizures. It will also evaluate the safety and tolerability of pregabalin and levetiracetam in these patients.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Parallel-Group Multi-Center Comparative Flexible-Dose Study Of Pregabalin Versus Levetiracetam As Adjunctive Therapy To Reduce Seizure Frequency In Subjects With Partial Seizures

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: The primary outcome is efficacy - the responder rate, defined as the proportion of subjects who had at least a 50% reduction in 28 day seizure rate during the maintenance phase, as measured from baseline (data collected during 6 weeks).

Secondary outcome:

Change in seizure count frequency from baseline to endpoint, calculated as the % change in 28-day seizure frequency during the maintenance phase of treatment compared with baseline.

Change in frequency of secondarily generalized tonic-clonic seizures

Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale

Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale

MOS-Sleep Scale

Safety and tolerability;

Seizure free rate

Eligibility

Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.

Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria:

- Subjects (male or female) must be > 18 years of age, with a diagnosis of epilepsy

with partial seizures, as defined in the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) classification of seizures.

- Partial seizures may be simple or complex, with or without secondary tonic-clonic

generalization.

- Subjects must be have been diagnosed with epilepsy for at least 2 years, and must

have been unresponsive to treatment with at least two but no more than five prior antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), and at the time of study enrollment are on stable dosages of 1 or 2 standard AEDs.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Females who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or intend to become pregnant during the

course of the trial will be excluded

- Subjects with other neurologic illness that could impair endpoint assessment, or
