Dravet syndrome, a severe infantile epilepsy syndrome, is typically resistant to anti-epileptic drugs (AED). Lamotrigine (LTG), an AED that is effective for both focal and generalized seizures, has been reported to aggravate seizures in Dravet syndrome. Therefore, LTG is usually avoided in Dravet syndrome. We describe two adults and a child with Dravet(More)
Reduced GABA(A)/central benzodiazepine receptor (GABA(A)/cBZR) density, mossy fibre sprouting (MFS) and hippocampal cell loss are well described pathological features of human temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE), and animal models thereof. However, the temporal relationship of their development, and their roles in the emergence of the epilepsy, are uncertain. This(More)
Despite the development of new antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), ~20%-30% of people with epilepsy remain refractory to treatment and are said to have drug-resistant epilepsy (DRE). This multifaceted condition comprises intractable seizures, neurobiochemical changes, cognitive decline, and psychosocial dysfunction. An ongoing challenge to both researchers and(More)
