Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Occurrence of at least one treatment-emergent adverse event during the Evaluation Period (approximately 10 years) [ Time Frame: From Entry visit 1 through the end of treatment (approximately 10 years) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Treatment-emergent adverse events are defined as adverse events with an onset date on or after the first study drug administration date.

  • Occurrence of discontinuations due to a treatment-emergent adverse event during the Evaluation Period (approximately 10 years). [ Time Frame: From Entry visit 1 through the end of treatment (approximately 10 years) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Treatment-emergent adverse events are defined as adverse events with an onset date on or after the first study drug administration date.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • For partial onset seizure (POS) subjects, Percent reduction from Baseline in Type 1 seizure frequency per 28 days over the Evaluation Period (up to maximum of 10 yrs). [ Time Frame: From baseline of original first study to maximum of 10 yrs ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Baseline is the baseline from subject's original first study of enrollment period).

  • For Partial onset seizure (POS), Proportion of continuously seizure-free subjects for all seizure types (l+ll+lll) over the Evaluation Period (maximum of 10 yrs) [ Time Frame: From Entry visit 1 through the end of treatment (approximately 10 years) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Responder rate in partial onset seizure (POS) (Type l ) over the Evaluation Period. A responder is defined as a subject with an equal to or greater than 50 percent reduction in seizure frequency from the Baseline period of the prior study. [ Time Frame: From baseline of original first study to maximum of 10 yrs. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Baseline is the baseline from subject's original first study of enrollment Period).

Enrollment: 668
Study Start Date: January 2006
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Brivaracetam
Brivaracetam used as adjunctive treatment, Flexible dosing up to 200 mg /day in b.i.d administration. Dose increase or decrease can be made in increments of maximum 50 mg/day on a weekly basis.
Drug: Brivaracetam

10 mg and 25 mg tablets of brivarcacetam, flexible dosing up to a maximum of 200 mg given in b.i.d administration.

The study will continue until a marketing authorization is granted by any Health Authority in an indication of adjunctive treatment in adults with refractory partial onset seizures (POS), whether or not secondarily generalized, until the Sponsor decides to close the study, or until brivaracetam development is stopped by the Sponsor.
