|Official Title:||Open-Label Study to Assess the Safety and Tolerability of Intravenous Carbamazepine as Short-Term Replacement of Oral Carbamazepine in Adult Patients With Epilepsy|
- Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Baseline to after last iv dose on day 4 ]
|Study Start Date:||June 2010|
|Primary Completion Date:||January 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
|Experimental: Intravenous Carbamazepine (IV CBZ)||
Drug: Intravenous Carbamazepine (IV CBZ)
10 mg/mL of IV CBZ dissolved in 250 mg/mL of Captisol® (sulfobutylether-beta-cyclodextrin) dosed at 70% of the patient's daily maintenance dose of oral CBZ administered after suitable dilution with D5W by IV infusion every 6 hours.
This was a phase III, multicenter, open-label study designed to assess the safety and tolerability of intravenously administered CBZ in adult patients with epilepsy. This study included a 28 day Lead-in Period, a Confinement Period (up to 7 days and 6 nights) and a 28 day Follow-up Period.
Patients began confinement on Day -1 of the trial, continuing to take their oral CBZ as prescribed by the investigator. On the morning of Day 0, Day 4, and Day 17, patients began the 24hr urine collection for evaluation of urinary biomarkers. All patients temporarily discontinued their prescribed oral CBZ and begin IV CBZ administration on the morning of Day 1, continuing administrations every 6 hours (Q6h) through the morning of Day 4.
