Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of subjects that report at least one Treatment-emergent Adverse Event during the study (approximately 13 weeks) [ Time Frame: 13 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean LCM plasma concentration at Visit 5 (Day 27/28) or Early Termination [ Time Frame: Visit 5 (Day 27/28) or Early Termination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean SPM 12809 plasma concentration at Visit 5 (Day 27/28) or Early Termination [ Time Frame: Visit 5 (Day 27/28) or Early Termination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in seizure frequency from Baseline to End of Treatment [ Time Frame: From Baseline to End of Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    For assessment of the Clinical Global Impression of Change, the investigator should provide his/her assessment of the subject's clinical status, compared to Baseline (Visit 1), including an evaluation of seizure frequency and intensity, the occurrence of AEs, and subject's functional status.

    The investigator will be asked to check the number that best describes the subject's condition over the past 4 weeks compared to Baseline:

    1. Very much improved
    2. Much improved
    3. Minimally improved
    4. No Change
    5. Minimally worse
    6. Much worse
    7. Very much worse

  • Mean Caregiver Global Impression of Change score at Visit 5 (Day 27/28) or Early Termination [ Time Frame: Visit 5 (Day 27/28) or Early Termination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    For the assessment of the Caregiver Global Impression of Change, the caregiver (including parent/legal guardian) should provide his/her assessment of the subject's clinical status,compared to Baseline (Visit 1), including an evaluation of seizure frequency and intensity, the occurrence of AEs, and subject's functional status.

    The caregiver will be asked to check the number that best describes the subject's condition over the past 4 weeks compared to Baseline:

    1. Very much improved
    2. Much improved
    3. Minimally improved
    4. No change
    5. Minimally worse
    6. Much worse
    7. Very much worse

  • Mean in Clinical Global Impression of Change score at Visit 5 (Day 27/28) or Early Termination [ Time Frame: Visit 5 (Day 27/28) or Early Termination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

Six subjects aged 5-11 will initially be enrolled at the 8 mg/kg/day dose level. Upon completion of the trial for these subjects, pharmacokinetic and safety data will be analyzed to determine the target dose for the remaining subjects (either 8, 10 or 12 mg/kg/day). Depending on the selected target dose, different age-based Cohorts of subjects will be enrolled. LCM will be increased 2 mg/kg/day per week until the target dose or maximum dose able to be tolerated is achieved.
