  Purpose

Male and female patients between 16 and 70 years of age who are diagnosed with epilepsy with partial seizures and are taking up to 3 medications for this medical condition will take part in this research study at approximately 80 different locations in Australia and Europe.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness, safety and tolerability of consistent dosages of study drug (lacosamide) taken orally twice a day for about 4 months.

Each patient who qualifies and chooses to participate in the study will receive placebo (inactive drug) or gradually increasing doses of lacosamide (SPM 927) up to the target dose of 200mg/day or 400mg/day. The target dose or placebo will be maintained for 12 weeks.

The study clinic visits will include a medical history and physical exam, ECG, blood and urine sample collection, and completion of a seizure diary.

Patients who complete the study may enroll in an extension trial and receive active study drug.
