Trial to Assess Optimized Dosage of Lacosamide as add-on Therapy in Patients With Partial Onset Seizure (SELF)
To evaluate if a flexible dose escalation of lacosamide, up to the maximum approved dose of 400 mg/day, or to a clinically effective lower dose for an individual patient, improves the tolerability and safety of lacosamide (200 mg to 400 mg/d) as add-on treatment for patients with partial onset epilepsy.
Explanation of acronym: SELF = Safety Efficacy Lacosamide Flexibility
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Multicenter, Open Label Study to Evaluate the Tolerability, Safety and Efficacy of Lacosamide (200mg - 400mg/Day) as add-on Therapy for Patients With Partial Onset Epilepsy Using a Flexible Dose-escalation Schedule and Individualized Maintenance Doses|
- Number of Subjects Reporting at Least 1 Treatment-Emergent Adverse Event (TEAE) During the Study [ Time Frame: During the study ( up to 24 - 28 weeks) ]Number of subjects reporting at least 1 Treatment-Emergent Adverse Event (TEAE) during the study. The study is comprised of a 12-week Titration Phase, a 12 -week Maintenance Phase, and a 3 to 4 week Taper Phase if needed.
- Number of Subjects Prematurely Discontinuing Due to a TEAE During the Study [ Time Frame: During the study (up to 24 - 28 weeks) ]Number of subjects prematurely discontinuing due to a TEAE during the study. The study is comprised of a 12-week Titration Phase, a 12 -week Maintenance Phase, and a 3 to 4 week Taper Phase if needed.
- Percentage of Subjects Retained on Vimpat Through the End of the 24-week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: End of Treatment Period (24-week) ]
The number of subjects continuing on Vimpat up to and including Visit 4 (Week 24) divided by the number of patients who took at least 1 dose of Vimpat multiplied by 100.
The overall Treatment Period comprises of a 12-week Titration Phase and 12-week Maintenance Phase.
