  Purpose
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of long-term administration of Lacosamide at doses up to 400 mg/day in Japanese and Chinese adults with Epilepsy who have completed the Treatment and Transition Period of EP0008 [NCT01710657]

Condition Intervention Phase
Epilepsy Partial-onset Seizures Drug: Lacosamide Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse Events (AEs) reported spontaneously by the subject or observed by the investigator from Baseline until the End of Study Visit [ Time Frame: From Visit 1 (Week 0) up to approximately Week 223 ]
  • Subject withdrawals due to Adverse Events from Baseline until the End of Study Visit [ Time Frame: From Visit 1 (Week 0) up to approximately Week 223 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent change in Partial-onset Seizure frequency per 28 days from Baseline until the End of Study Visit [ Time Frame: From Visit 1 in study EP0008 [NCT01710657] up to approximately Week 223 ]
    Baseline is defined as the Baseline Period of study EP0008 [NCT01710657].

  • 50 % response rate from Baseline of study EP0008 [NCT01710657] until the End of Study Visit [ Time Frame: From Visit 1 in study EP0008 [NCT01710657] up to approximately Week 223 ]
    A responder is defined as a subject that experiences a ≥ 50 % reduction from Baseline in partial-onset seizure frequency per 28 days. Baseline is defined as the Baseline Period of study EP0008 [NCT01710657].


Enrollment: 473
Study Start Date: March 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2019 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Lacosamide
Lacosamide treatment of 100 - 400 mg/day for long-term
Drug: Lacosamide

Strength: Lacosamide (LCM) 50 mg, LCM 100 mg

Formulation: Tablet

Frequency: twice daily during the study period (until the date of approval)

At the completion of EP0008 [NCT01710657], all subjects who choose to enroll in EP0009 will be taking a dose of Lacosamide 200 mg/day. At the beginning of EP0009, the investigator may maintain the LCM dose or increase or decrease the dose. During the Treatment Period, the investigator will be allowed to increase or decrease the dose of LCM to optimize tolerability and seizure reduction. The LCM dose may be decreased to 100 mg/day or increased, no faster than 100 mg/day per week, up to 400 mg/day.
