  Purpose

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of oral Lacosamide as first add on treatment in subjects with uncontrolled partial-onset seizures after prior treatment with a monotherapy Antiepileptic Drug (AED) regimen compared to subjects who have received treatment with at least 2 AEDs.


Condition Intervention Phase
Partial Epilepsies
Drug: Lacosamide
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open-Label, Multicenter, Multinational Study of Lacosamide as First Add-On Anti-epileptic Drug (AED) Treatment in Subjects With Partial-Onset Seizures

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Proportion of Subjects Who Achieved "Seizure-free Status" During the First 12 Weeks of the Maintenance Phase [ Time Frame: From Week 7 (end of Week 6) to end of Week 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    A subject will be considered seizure-free if the subject completes the first 12 weeks of the Maintenance Phase, reports zero seizures, and has no seizure data missing for any day during the period of time.

    This study was intended to assess the efficacy outcomes in the First Add-On Group and the Later Add-On Group individually relative to historical data. Comparisons between the 2 groups should not be attempted and conclusions should not be drawn.

  • Currently taking 1 to 3 AEDs, and has tried at least 2 prior AED treatment regimens (concurrently or sequentially)
  • Epilepsy diagnosis should be ≥5 years at the time of the Screening Visit
  • The minimum allowed seizure frequency during the 12 weeks prior to the Screening Visit is ≥1 partial-onset seizure per 28 days

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of seizure disorder characterized primarily by isolated auras
  • History of primary generalized seizures
  • History of status epilepticus within last 12-months
  • History of cluster seizures during the 12 week period prior to Visit 1
  • Nonepileptic events, including pseudoseizures that could be confused with seizure
