1.Primary Outcome
Title The Cumulative Exit Rate at 112 Days After the Beginning of the Baseline Antiepileptic Drug (AED) Tapering Phase
Hide Description The cumulative exit rate was estimated using Kaplan-Meier methods and was based on the duration between start of the Evaluation Period (EP) and the earliest date the first exit criterion was met for each subject. Subjects completing the EP without meeting an exit criterion were censored on Day 112. The primary comparison was BRV 50 mg/day vs a historical control. The upper limit of the 2-sided 95 % Confidence Interval for the estimate was compared to the historical lower bound estimate of 0.722.
Time Frame From Week 1 up to Week 17
Hide Outcome Measure Data
Hide Analysis Population Description
The Efficacy Analysis Set (EFF) consists of all randomized subjects with at least one intake of study medication who also entered into the Baseline antiepileptic drug (AED) Tapering Period and started the withdrawal of Baseline AEDs.
