Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of brivaracetam (BRV) compared to placebo (PBO) as adjunctive treatment in subjects (>=16 to 80 years of age) with partial seizures with or without secondary generalization despite current treatment with 1 or 2 concomitant antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and to assess the safety and tolerability of BRV in subjects >= 16 years to 80 years of age.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: From Screening (Week -8) until Safety Visit (up to Week 18) ]
    An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product that does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment.

  2. Partial seizure frequency per 28 days during the 12-week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: From Baseline to 12-weeks Treatement Period ]
    Partial (Type I) seizures can be classified into one of the following three groups: Simple partial seizures, Complex partial seizures, Partial seizures evolving to secondarily generalized seizures.

  3. Percent change in partial seizure frequency during the 12-week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: From Baseline to 12-weeks Tratement Period ]
    Calculated as (seizure frequency Baseline - seizure frequency Treatment) *100/ (seizure frequency Baseline). The higher the values for percent change in partial seizure (PS) frequency, the higher the improvement from Baseline.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. 50% responder rate based on percent change in partial seizure frequency per 28 days from Baseline to the 12-week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: From Baseline to 12-week Treatment Period ]
    Responders are those subjects with at least 50% reduction from Baseline to the 12-week Treatment Period in partial seizure frequency per 28 days

  2. Percent change in partial seizure frequency per 28 days from Baseline to the 12-week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: From Baseline to 12-week Treatment Period ]

    Calculated as 28-day seizure frequency during the Treatment Period - 28-day seizure frequency during the Baseline Period, divided by the 28-day seizure frequency during the Baseline Period with this quantity multiplied by 100.

    A negative value in percent change from Baseline indicates a decrease in partial seizure frequency from Baseline to the Treatment Period.


  3. Categorized percent change in partial seizures frequency per 28 days from Baseline to the 12-week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: From Baseline to 12-week Treatment Period ]
    Calculated as 28-day seizure frequency during the Treatment Period - 28-day seizure frequency during the Baseline Period, divided by the 28-day seizure frequency during the Baseline Period with this quantity multiplied by 100.

  4. All seizure frequency (partial, generalized, and unclassified epileptic seizures) per 28 days during the 12-week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: During the 12-week Treatment Period ]
    There are three types of epileptic seizures: Partial epileptic seizures (Type I), Generalized epileptic seizures (Type II) and unclassified epileptic seizures (Type III).

  5. Percentage of subjects who are seizure free (partial, all epileptic seizures) during the 12-week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: During the 12-week Treatment Period ]
    A subject was considered seizure free, if no seizure was reported during the 12-week Treatment Period.

  6. Time to nth (n= 1, 5, 10) partial seizure during the 12-week Treatment Period [ Time Frame: During the 12-week Treatment Period ]
    Number of days to first, fifth, and tenth seizure after baseline.

  7. Brivaracetam plasma concentration [ Time Frame: Plasma samples will be collected in week 2, 4, 8, 12, 14. ]
    Blood samples will be collected at indicated time points to determine the brivaracetam plasma concentration.

Plan Description: Data from this study may be requested by qualified researchers six months after product approval in the US and/or Europe, or global development is discontinued, and 18 months after trial completion. Investigators may request access to anonymized IPD and redacted study documents which may include: raw datasets, analysis-ready datasets, study protocol, blank case report form, annotated case report form, statistical analysis plan, dataset specifications, and clinical study report. Prior to use of the data, proposals need to be approved by an independent review panel at www.clinicalstudydatarequest.com and a signed data sharing agreement will need to be executed. All documents are available in English only, for a pre-specified time, typically 12 months, on a password protected portal.
