  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   16 Years to 70 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects were from 16 to 70 years, both inclusive. Subjects under 18 years of age were only included where legally permitted and ethically accepted
  • Subjects with well-characterized focal epilepsy or epileptic syndrome according to the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) classification
  • Subjects had a history of partial onset seizures (POS) whether or not secondarily generalized (Type I seizures according to the ILAE classification)
  • Subjects had at least 2 POS whether or not secondarily generalized per month during the 3 months preceding Visit 1
  • Subjects had at least 8 POS whether or not secondarily generalized during the 8-Week Baseline Period
  • Subjects were uncontrolled while treated by 1 to 2 permitted concomitant antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). Vagal nerve stimulation was allowed and was not counted as a concomitant AED

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History or presence of seizures occurring only in clusters (too frequently or indistinctly separated to be reliably counted) before Visit 3
  • History or presence of status epilepticus during the year preceding Visit 1 or during Baseline
