Do you live in USA, have epilepsy want to take part in a trial?

Upsher-Smith in Minnesota are recruiting people with Epilepsy to evaluate an rescue treatment for seizure clusters. If that's you then you need to meet their full criteria then it may be right for you.  The criteria include that:

  • You must have a competent, adult caregiver who can recognize and observe your seizure cluster episodes, is willing to be trained in the study procedures, and is willing to record information regarding seizure cluster episodes.
  • You must have an established diagnosis of partial or generalized epilepsy that includes a history of seizure clusters. A study physician will determine if your seizure cluster pattern meets the criteria for the study.
  • You must be between the ages of 14 and 65 years (inclusive).
  • Your weight must be between 50 kg (110 lbs) and 125 kg (275 lbs).
  • You must also be on a stable regimen of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) after starting the trial, and remain so for at least 7 days prior to your second visit.
  • You must meet other criteria as evaluated by the study physician.

To read more and apply visit their Seizure Cluster Study website.

To be clear, I am not recommending this to anyone and I have no association with the company.  But perhaps assisting in this field research may help some people with epilepsy.
