Observational study validates ILAE outcome criteria in adults with drug-resistant focal epilepsy

Takeaway

  • Fewer than one in ten adults with externally validated drug-resistant focal epilepsy achieve seizure freedom following introduction of a new anti-epileptic drug (AED).

Why this matters

  • This study validates International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) treatment outcome criteria in the clinical setting, providing estimates of seizure freedom in patients with drug-resistant focal epilepsy.
