Brief Summary:
This is an open-label, multi-center study of carisbamate in adult and pediatric subjects with LGS, with single- and multiple-dose PK assessments from Days 1 through 73. There will be a Screening Period of up to 28 days and a Treatment Period of 87 days.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lennox Gastaut Syndrome Drug: Carisbamate Phase 1

Detailed Description:

A total of 24 subjects are planned: 6 subjects in each of 4 cohorts: Cohort I (≥18 years), Cohort II (12 to <18 years), Cohort III (6 to <12 years), and Cohort IV (2 to <6 years).

For Cohorts I and II, PK assessments of carisbamate, S-enantiomer and its R-enantiomer plasma concentrations, will be conducted on Days 1, 2 and 3 of the single dose period at pre-dose and 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, and 48 hours after dosing and on Day 17 of the multiple-dose period at pre dose and 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 12 hours after dosing; trough samples will be collected on Days 45 and 73 of the dose-adjustment period.

For Cohort III, PK assessments of carisbamate, S-enantiomer and its R-enantiomer plasma concentrations will be conducted on Days 1, 2 and 3 of the single dose period at pre dose and 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, and 48 hours after dosing and on Day 17 of the multiple-dose period at pre-dose and 2 hours after dosing; trough samples will be collected on Days 45 and 73 of the dose-adjustment period.

For Cohort IV, a sparse PK sampling approach will be used, and the time of PK sampling time will be based on the PK results from the other cohorts. A maximum of 2 to 4 time points on each day (1 and 17) will be collected.

Safety assessments include adverse event (AE) and concomitant medication reporting, clinical laboratory testing, vital sign measurements, 12 lead electrocardiograms (ECGs), physical examinations, and neurologic examinations.

Experimental: Cohort IV
Subjects 2 to <6 years of age. The starting doses for the single dose and multiple-dose periods will be based on the PK and safety results of the first 3 cohorts.
Drug: Carisbamate
An oral liquid formulation (20 mg/mL) of carisbamate (S-carisbamate)

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The area under the curve (AUC) of carisbamate after a single and multiple doses of carisbamate. [ Time Frame: Days 1-3, Day 17 ]
    Safety Assessment

  2. The maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) after a single and multiple doses of carisbamate. [ Time Frame: Days 1-3, Day 17 ]
    Safety assessment


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety - adverse events (AEs) reporting after a single and multiple doses of carisbamate. [ Time Frame: Days 1-87 ]
    Adverse event assessment for seriousness (yes, no), severity (mild, moderate, severe), affect on carisbamate dosing (increase, reduced, interrupted, withdrawn, no change), and outcome (recovered/resolved,recovered/resolved with sequelae, recovering/resolving, not recovered/not resolved, fatal or unknown).

Ages Eligible for Study:   2 Years and older   (Child, Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Diagnosis of LGS as evidenced by the following:

    1. More than 1 type of generalized seizure, including drop seizures (atonic, tonic, or myoclonic), for ≥6 months before Visit 1
    2. Previous electroencephalogram reporting diagnostic criteria for LGS (abnormal background activity accompanied by slow spike-and-wave pattern <2.5 Hz)
  2. Male or female aged ≥2 years at the time of consent
  3. Aged <11 years at the onset of LGS
  4. Written informed consent signed by the subject or legal guardian prior to entering the study in accordance with the ICH GCP guidelines. Age appropriate assent will be obtained for children and adolescents. If the written informed consent is provided by the legal guardian because the subject is unable to do so, a written or verbal assent from the subject must also be obtained.
