Pediatric Epilepsy Trial in Subjects 1-24 Months
A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Add-On Clinical Trial of the Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Efficacy of Lamictal in Pediatric Age Subjects (1-24 Months)
This study is being conducted to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of LAMICTAL added to the current therapy of pediatric patients age 1-24 months old with partial seizures. The medication used in this study has been approved by FDA for the adjunctive treatment of partial seizures in patients 2 years and older.
