All children had normal thyroid function before the initiation of VPA treatment. Serum VPA concentrations remained within the therapeutic range (50-100 mg/L) during the period of study. Thyroxine and free thyroxine levels were significantly decreased, whereas TSH levels were significantly increased at 6, 12, and 24 months of VPA therapy. Triiodothyronine levels were significantly decreased only at 24 months of therapy. Thirteen children (43.3%) at 6 months, 14 children (46.6%) at 12 months, and 15 children (50%) at 24 months of treatment had TSH values greater than 5 mIU/mL. Normal serum TSH levels were restored in all 8 children examined at 3 months after withdrawal of medication.

In this study, a simple, rapid, and sensitive method was developed and validated for the quantification of valproic acid (VPA), an antiepileptic drug, in human plasma, which was based on water-phase derivatization followed by headspace solid-phase microextraction (HS-SPME) and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS). In the proposed method, VPA in plasma was rapidly derivatized with a mixture of isobutyl chloroformate, ethanol and pyridine under mild conditions (room temperature, aqueous medium), and the VPA ethyl ester formed was headspace-extracted and simultaneously concentrated using the SPME technique. Finally, the analyte extracted on SPME fiber was analyzed by GC/MS. The experimental parameters and method validations were studied. The optimal conditions were obtained: PDMS fiber, stirring rate of 1100 rpm, sample temperature of 80 degrees C, extraction time of 20 min, NaCl concentration of 30%. The proposed method had a limit of quantification (0.3 microg/mL), good recovery (89-97%) and precision (RSD value less than 10%). Because the proposed method combined a rapid water-phase derivatization with a fast, simple and solvent-free sample extraction and concentration technique of SPME, the sample preparation time was less than 25 min. This much shortens the whole analysis time of VPA in plasma. The validated method has been successfully used to analyze VPA in human plasma samples for application in pharmacokinetic studies. All these results show that water-phase derivatization followed by HS-SPME and GC/MS is an alternative and powerful method for fast determination of VPA in biological fluids.

Inflammation and immune response play a pivotal role in the pathophysiology of ischemic stroke giving their contribution to tissue damage and repair. Emerging evidence supports the involvement of epigenetic mechanisms such as methylation, histone modification and miRNAs in the pathogenesis of stroke. Interestingly, epigenetics can influence the molecular events involved in ischemic injury by controlling the switch from pro- to anti-inflammatory response, however, this is still a field to be fully explored. The knowledge of epigenetic processes could to allow for the discovery of more sensitive and specific biomarkers for risk, onset, and progression of disease as well as further novel tools to be used in both primary prevention and therapy of stroke. Indeed, studies performed in vitro and in small animal models seem to suggest a neuroprotective role of HDAC inhibitors (e.g. valproic acid) and antagomir (e.g. anti-miR-181a) in ischemic condition by modulation of both immune and inflammatory pathways. Thus, the clinical implications of altered epigenetic mechanisms for the prevention of stroke are very promising but clinical prospective studies and translational approaches are still warranted.

Postimplantation whole embryo culture (WEC) assay for rats and mice has been well established and introduced to many laboratories. Recently WEC technique for rabbits has been developed; however, information on culture of other species is very limited. Knowing the usefulness of hamsters in classical embryotoxicology, we reasoned that hamster WEC could be an alternative model for the most frequently used rat and mouse WEC. Previously we have optimized culture conditions for postimplantation hamster embryos. The aim of this study was to test the susceptibility of hamster embryos cultured in vitro to embryotoxic compounds and to compare our results with those reported by others on rat or mouse embryo culture. For that purpose we choose three known embryotoxic compounds--valproic acid, cadmium chloride, and diethylstilbestrol--and tested them using a postimplantation hamster whole embryo culture assay. Hamster embryos were cultured from 7.5 days gestation for 24 h in a medium consisting of 35% hamster serum and 65% synthetic culture medium (Iscove's or McCoy 5A). At the end of the culture period, the embryos were examined morphologically, measured with the aid of a computer image analysis system, and total protein content was assessed. All three compounds exhibited dose-related embryotoxic and teratogenic effects in hamster embryos. The malformations observed were similar to those reported on rat and mouse embryos. Comparison of the results with data reported by other authors indicates that hamster embryos cultured in vitro might be more susceptible to embryotoxic stimuli than rat and mouse embryos.

The anti-convulsant drug valproate causes hepatic failure in a small percentage of patients. We now report that the valproate metabolite 2,4-dien-valproate binds (IC50 = 42 microM) to the alpha-subunit of the trifunctional protein responsible for the second and third steps in the mitochondrial beta-oxidation of fatty acids. Binding of valproate itself, or of the metabolites 2-envalproate, 4-en-valproate or 3-hydroxy-4-en-valproate, is considerably weaker. We conclude that valproate-induced hepatotoxicity may be due in part to the reversible binding of the valproate metabolite 2,4-dien-valproate or its CoA ester to the alpha-subunit of the trifunctional protein with consequent inhibition of fatty acid oxidation.

Differentiation induction is a distinct concept in the treatment of malignant diseases, considering that malignant cells share many features with immature progenitor cells that are capable of terminal differentiation. Treatment of tumor cells with short-chain fatty acid treatment of erythroid progenitors in vitro and in vivo induces cellular differentiation resulting in gamma-globin, i.e., fetal hemoglobin synthesis. Valproic acid (VPA) is a branched-chain fatty acid that is able to inhibit growth of human and rodent tumor cells and to induce a mature phenotype. The antitumoral effects observed in preclinical studies were reached at concentrations that are readily achieved in patients treated with VPA for epilepsy. Hypothesizing that anticonvulsive VPA levels may be used for antitumoral differentiation induction therapy of pediatric malignant tumors, the authors studied fetal hemoglobin-inducing capacity of VPA in children treated with VPA for epilepsy. Fetal hemoglobin was significantly increased in 30 children with epilepsy treated with VPA monotherapy for at least 3 months when compared to untreated control patients. Furthermore, fetal hemoglobin levels correlated with VPA serum levels. The study confirms the dose-dependent stimulating effect of VPA on fetal hemoglobin synthesis at anticonvulsive doses. The results suggest that nontoxic VPA levels reached in pediatric epilepsy patients should be capable of inducing cellular differentiation of pediatric malignant tumors for therapeutic purposes. Broad clinical experience with VPA and its low toxicity further encourage the evaluation of VPA in pediatric oncology for differentiation induction therapy.

Most women with epilepsy need to take antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) in pregnancy to prevent the potentially harmful effects of seizures. Retrospective studies have demonstrated an increased chance of having a child with a birth defect (BD) in women with epilepsy taking AEDs. It is uncertain how much of this risk is directly caused by the AEDs and whether certain drugs or combinations are associated with a greater risk.

We report a 66-year-old man with hepatic encephalopathy due to a non-cirrhotic porto-systemic shunt during the course of treatment for epilepsy with sodium valproate. The patient developed symptomatic epilepsy after an operation for intracranial arterio-venous malformation at the age of 41, and had been treated with sodium valproate and phenytoin since. At the age of 66, he developed convulsions that were thought to be symptomatic epilepsy with hyperammonemia. Despite sodium valproate having been tapered rapidly and then discontinued, hyperammonemia continued. Abdominal contrast enhanced CT demonstrated a large spleno-renal shunt. Although he was treated with lactulose, he developed encephalopathy with hyperammonemia several times. At the age of 67, we occluded the spleno-renal shunt by balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration (B-RTO), after which, his clinical symptoms improved, together with normalizing of the ammonia level and EEGs.

Seizures are a common complication of pediatric brain tumors and their treatment. This article reviews the epidemiology, evaluation, and treatment of seizures in children with brain tumors. Seizures in known brain tumor patients may signify tumor progression or recurrence, or treatment-related brain damage, as well as other causes, including low drug levels and metabolic disturbances. Careful selection of antiepileptic medications is needed in this population. There are advantages to nonenzyme-inducing antiepileptic drugs including valproic acid, which has potential antitumoral properties as a histone deacetylase inhibitor. Tumor surgery cures many cases of pediatric tumor-associated seizures, and some children are controlled with anti-epileptic medication, however additional epilepsy surgery may be needed for refractory cases.

Previous studies have demonstrated that carnitine levels were lower in patients taking valproate, especially in those who are younger than 24 months of age, those with concomitant neurologic or metabolic disorders, and those on multiple antiepileptic drugs. We performed a cross-sectional surveillance study on pediatric patients taking valproate to evaluate the relationship between carnitine levels and demographic data including age, daily dosage of valproate, number of antiepileptic drugs, body mass index, and feeding problems. Among the 43 patients studied, only two patients were found to have carnitine levels below the normal limit. There were no statistically significant associations between carnitine levels and age, body mass index, additional antiepileptic drugs used, presence of mental retardation, cerebral palsy, or feeding problems, nonambulatory status, or dosage of valproate. We conclude that routine carnitine level checking is not justified in pediatric patients taking valproate.

Left-hippocampal volume is increased in older bipolar subjects compared with NC subjects. The differences were not explained by age at onset, current mood state, or cognitive status, but may be associated with exposure to lithium. This finding would support previous observations about the neural-plasticity effect of lithium.

All of the tested compounds were effective in the models tested. No significant difference in ED50 values was observed but the plasma and brain EC50 values of (2R,3S)-VCD in the 6Hz model at 32 mA stimulation were 2-fold higher than the EC50 values of (2S,3S)-VCD. An excellent pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic correlation was found between the plasma and brain concentrations of the VCD stereoisomers and their anticonvulsant effect in mice. Stereoselectivity was observed in clearance, volume of distribution, and in brain-to-plasma AUC ratio at a dose of 25 mg/kg, but the difference disappeared at higher doses as the clearance of the stereoisomers decreased and their half-life increased. For (2R,3S)-VCD the brain-to-plasma AUC ratio doubled at the tested dose range, while it remained constant for (2S,3S)-VCD.

Regeneration in the mammalian CNS is severely limited. Unlike in the chick, current models hold that retinal neurons are never regenerated. Previously we demonstrated that, in the adult mammalian retina, Müller glia dedifferentiate and produce retinal cells, including photoreceptors, after acute neurotoxic injury in vivo. However, the number of newly generated retinal neurons is very limited. Here we demonstrate that Wnt (wingless-type MMTV integration site family)/beta-catenin signaling promotes proliferation of Müller glia-derived retinal progenitors and neural regeneration after damage or during degeneration. Wnt3a treatment increases proliferation of dedifferentiated Müller glia >20-fold in the photoreceptor-damaged retina. Supplementation with retinoic acid or valproic acid induces differentiation of these cells primarily into Crx (cone rod homeobox)-positive and rhodopsin-positive photoreceptors. Notably, injury induces nuclear accumulation of beta-catenin, cyclin D1 upregulation, and Wnt/beta-catenin reporter activity. Activation of Wnt signaling by glycogen synthase kinase-3beta inhibitors promotes retinal regeneration, and, conversely, inhibition of the signaling attenuates regeneration. This Wnt3a-mediated regeneration of retinal cells also occurs in rd mice, a model of retinal degeneration. These results provide evidence that Wnt/beta-catenin signaling contributes to CNS regeneration in the adult mammal.

At the beginning of neurogenesis, massive brain cell death occurs and more than 50% of cells are eliminated by apoptosis along with neuronal differentiation. However, few studies were conducted so far regarding the regulation of neural progenitor cells (NPCs) death during development. Because of the physiological role of cell death during development, aberration of normal apoptotic cell death is detrimental to normal organogenesis.Apoptosis occurs in not only neuron but also in NPCs and neuroblast. When growth and survival signals such as EGF or LIF are removed, apoptosis is activated as well as the induction of differentiation. To investigate the regulation of cell death during developmental stage, it is essential to investigate the regulation of apoptosis of NPCs.

Seizure is a common complication after stroke (termed "post-stroke seizure," PSS). Although many studies have assessed outcomes and risk factors of PSS, no reliable predictors are currently available to determine PSS recurrence. We compared baseline clinical characteristics and post-stroke treatment regimens between recurrent and non-recurrent PSS patients to identify factors predictive of recurrence.

Use of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) in pregnant women with epilepsy (WWE) is associated with an increased risk of major congenital malformations (MCM). Previous studies have suggested that WWE who had a malformation in their index pregnancy were at an increased risk of recurrence in future pregnancies. We aimed to assess the risk of recurrence of MCM in 1,616 WWE from Kerala Registry of Epilepsy and Pregnancy. The pregnancy outcome of women (n = 246) with two prospective pregnancies in the registry were analyzed. They had partial seizures with or without generalization (57.3%) or generalized seizures (42.7%). Polytherapy was used in 26.4% (index pregnancy) and 23.6% (follow-up pregnancy). The mean dosage of AED for valproate was 498 mg/day and carbamazepine was 555 mg/day. The malformation rate in the index pregnancy was 8.5% (21/246) and in the follow-up pregnancy was 8.9% (22/246) with only one recurrence. There was no increased risk of MCM in follow-up pregnancy for those who had MCM in the index pregnancy (p = 0.70; OR 0.49; 95% CI 0.06-3.80). The use of any specific drug, continuation of the same drug or a change in drug therapy between two pregnancies did not alter the recurrence risk.

Two hundred sixty neurologists included 2220 patients (1162 males, 1057 females with a mean age of 41 years (from 1 month to 96 years). Forty-one percent of these patients were referred by a general practitioner and 22 percent by emergency departments. Four hundred and thirty-seven patients (19.7 percent) had only experienced a single seizure at treatment initiation. Patients were classified according to focal epilepsy (43.9 percent of patients), generalized epilepsy (46.4 percent of patients), or non-classified epilepsy (9.7 percent of patients). Sixty-six percent of patients had a biological check-up. Ninety-three percent of patients underwent an EEG and 80.7 per cent a CT scan or brain MRI. The high risk of recurrence was the main reason given by neurologists for instituting anti-epileptic treatment. The reason for initiating treatment was syndromic diagnosis in 23.7 percent of patients with multiple seizures. The most frequently prescribed drug was valproic acid (58.2 percent of patients) chosen because of its practical use and broad anti-epileptic spectrum.

Management of migraine patients with or without aura must include appropriate medication to treat the attack and long-term preventive therapy, especially if the frequency of the attacks is greater than 2-4 per month. In both cases the choice of treatment depends on its efficacy and side effects. With regard to acute drug therapy, group studies do not suggest that ergot derivatives and sumatriptan are superior to simple analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs, particularly if a prokinetic agent is added. These new substances are indicated for severe attacks refractory to more conventional therapy. Chronic drug abuse may induce drug-induced or rebound headaches. As regards long-term prophylaxis, group studies suggest that calcium antagonists and 5-HT-influencing drugs are superior concerning attacks frequency to beta-blocking agents, but involve very frequent side effects (weight gain and somnolence). Interesting preliminary results have also been reported with valproate and enalapril, which will confirmation by controlled studies. Finally, the choice of drug must take into account the patient's comorbidities (cardiovascular diseases, asthma, diabetes etc).

The G-protein activated, inward-rectifying potassium (K(+)) channels, "GIRKs", are a family of ion channels (Kir3.1-Kir3.4) that has been the focus of intense research interest for nearly two decades. GIRKs are comprised of various homo- and heterotetrameric combinations of four different subunits. These subunits are expressed in different combinations in a variety of regions throughout the central nervous system and in the periphery. The body of GIRK research implicates GIRK in processes as diverse as controlling heart rhythm, to effects on reward/addiction, to modulation of response to analgesics. Despite years of GIRK research, very buy depakote online few tools exist to selectively modulate GIRK channels' activity and until now no tools existed that potently and selectively activated GIRKs. Here we report the development and characterization of the first truly potent, effective, and selective GIRK activator, ML297 (VU0456810). We further demonstrate that ML297 is active in two in vivo models of epilepsy, a disease where up to 40% of patients remain with symptoms refractory to present treatments. The development of ML297 represents a truly significant advancement in our ability to selectively probe GIRK's role in physiology as well as providing the first tool for beginning to understand GIRK's potential as a target for a diversity of therapeutic indications.

Valproic acid, which is widely used to treat various types of epilepsy, may cause severe hyperammonemia. However, the mechanism responsible for this side effect is not readily apparent. Polymorphisms in the genes encoding carbamoyl-phosphate synthase 1 (CPS1 buy depakote online ) and N-acetylglutamate synthase (NAGS) were recently reported to be risk factors for the development of hyperammonemia during valproic acid-based therapy. This study aimed to examine the influence of patient characteristics, including polymorphisms in CPS1 4217C>A and NAGS -3064C>A, on the development of hyperammonemia in Japanese pediatric epilepsy patients. The study included 177 pediatric epilepsy patients. The presence of a 4217C>A polymorphism in CPS1 was determined using an allele-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based method, and the presence of a -3064C>A polymorphism in NAGS was determined using a PCR-based restriction fragment length polymorphism method. Hyperammonemia was defined as a plasma ammonia level exceeding 200 μg/dL. We observed a significant difference between the combination of valproic acid with phenytoin and the development of hyperammonemia in both univariate and multivariate analyses. With regard to the CPS1 4217C>A polymorphism, we did not observe a significant association with the development of hyperammonemia. In conclusion, CPS1 4217C>A polymorphism may not be associated with the development of hyperammonemia in Japanese population.

Lower peak valproate concentrations with divalproex sodium may have enhanced tolerability but may also explain the lower effectiveness. Extended-release divalproex could lower effectiveness further and require higher doses. Thus, inpatients are better served by beginning buy depakote online with generic valproic acid and by changing to delayed-release divalproex only if intolerance occurs. This would save up to one-third of inpatient costs and two-thirds of a billion dollars yearly in medication costs.

Opsoclonus-myoclonus-ataxia syndrome (OMS) is a rare neurological disorder of probably autoimmune origin. Most cases are associated with a remote neoplasm or a viral infection; however in some instances no underlying aetiology can be demonstrated. We report the presence of anti-glutamic acid decarboxylase antibodies (anti-GAD Abs) in the serum and CSF of a patient with idiopathic OMS. Treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin led to a remarkable clinical improvement with parallel reduction of anti-GAD titers. Anti-GAD Abs have been associated with several neurological syndromes. They could also be responsible for the clinical triad of OMS, by impairing GABAergic transmission in specific brainstem and cerebellar circuits. We propose that testing for anti-GAD Abs should be performed in OMS, especially when no other aetiological association can buy depakote online be demonstrated.

Lamotrigine is a phenyltriazine derivative with anticonvulsant properties that initially was tested in adults with partial seizures. Pharmacokinetics in adults includes a volume of distribution of 1.0 to 1.3 L/kg. Plasma protein binding is 55% and none of the metabolites are active as anticonvulsants. The placebo-controlled studies evaluated the responder rate as the percent of patients with 50% or greater seizure reduction when compared to baseline assessment. The responder rate for 300 mg per day was 20% and 36% for 500 mg per day dosages. Adverse events were infrequent but the occurrence of rash appeared to correlate with rapid ascension dosing and comedication with valproic acid. Slow titration buy depakote online is required when initiating treatment with lamotrigine. Accumulating experience in adults suggests that lamotrigine has a broad spectrum of effect; data from further controlled trials should suggest other clinically important forms of epilepsy that respond to lamotrigine.

Neurons secreting gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) contain receptors of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), glutamate, fibroblast-growth factor, prolactin, beta-adrenergic receptor and dopamine receptor. Oestrogens and opioid peptides have a very important influence on gonadotropin secretion, but have no their own receptors in GnRH neurons. The role and interaction between gamma-aminobutyric buy depakote online acid and opioids in the inhibition of ovulation were studied, using valproate (GABA agonist) and naloxone (opioid antagonist)

Huntington's disease (HD) is an autosomal dominant progressive neurodegenerative disorder which affects medium spiny GABAergic neurons mainly in the striatum. Oxidative damage, neuro-inflammation, apoptosis, protein aggregation, and signaling of neurotrophic factors are some of the common cellular pathways involved in HD. Quinolinic acid (QA) causes excitotoxicity by stimulating N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors via calcium overload leading to neurodegeneration. Neuroprotective potential of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor-γ (PPARγ) agonists and histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors have been well documented in experimental models of neurodegenerative disorders; however, their exact mechanisms are not clear. Therefore, present study has been designed to explore possible neuroprotective mechanism of valproic acid (VPA) and its interaction with rosiglitazone against QA induced HD-like symptoms in rats. Single bilateral intrastriatal QA (200 nmol/2 μl saline) administration significantly caused motor incoordination, memory impairment, oxidative damage, mitochondrial dysfunction (complex I, II, II and IV), cellular alterations [tumor necrosis buy depakote online factor-alpha (TNF-α), caspase-3, brain derived neurotrophic factor, acetylcholinesterase], and striatal neurodegeneration as compared to sham group. Treatment with rosiglitazone (5, 10 mg/kg) and VPA (100, 200 mg/kg) for 21 days significantly attenuated these behavioral, biochemical, and cellular alterations as compared to control (QA 200 nmol) group. However, VPA (100 mg/kg) treatment in combination with rosiglitazone (5 mg/kg) for 21 days synergized their neuroprotective effect, which was significant as compared to their effects per se in QA-treated animals. The present study provides an evidence of possible interplay of PPARγ agonists and HDAC inhibitors as a novel therapeutic strategy in the management of HD.

The UGT2B15*2/*2 group showed 0.58-fold buy depakote online (95% confidence interval, 0.43-0.72; P < .0001) lower systemic clearance during the basal state and 1.37-fold (95% confidence interval, 1.05-1.88; P = .037) higher area under the visual analog scale-time curve during the induced state compared with the UGT2B15*1/*1 group. The mean systemic clearance of lorazepam decreased by 20% in the inhibited state and increased by 140% in the induced state. During the inhibited or induced state, absolute values of clearance were consistently lower in the *2/*2 group, but the percent changes from baseline did not differ significantly by genotype.

There are currently three mood stabilizers available for the maintenance treatment of patients with bipolar I disorder: lithium, valproate, and carbamazepine. Unfortunately, monotherapy with each of these conventional agents often fails. To improve outcome, clinicians utilize polypharmacy. Although the efficacy of this practice is largely unknown, because of the lack of controlled studies, data from the United States and Europe indicate polypharmacy is the rule rather than the exception. The few controlled trials that have been conducted indicate that (1) the specific combination of lithium plus imipramine provides no advantage over lithium monotherapy (notwithstanding the inadequacy of lithium monotherapy); (2) the specific combination of lithium buy depakote online and the depot neuroleptic flupenthixol provides no advantage over lithium monotherapy; and (3) the combination of lithium plus carbamazepine may be as effective as lithium plus haloperidol for acute and continuation treatment. Most of the literature on polypharmacy consists of case reports, retrospective chart reviews, and open-label prospective studies, and describes the use of numerous combinations of medications, including lithium plus valproate, lithium plus carbamazepine, and valproate plus carbamazepine. Preliminary findings suggest these combinations may be effective, and that clozapine and high-dose levothyroxine may each be useful as well when combined with other drugs. Further research is necessary to formally evaluate whether these drug combinations are more effective than monotherapy. Until such studies are completed, certain general principles regarding side effects, pharmacodynamics, and pharmacokinetics should be kept in mind when prescribing two or more medications concurrently.

Continuous spikes and waves during slow sleep (CSWSS) is a well-known EEG pattern that can be associated with cognitive and behavioural deterioration. We present the long-term neuropsychological follow-up and nosological considerations of five patients who developed CSWSS during childhood. All five of our patients presented CSWSS, although the duration and severity of this pattern varied. The outcome was of three basic types: acquired frontal dementia, language deficits and normal. Four of our patients were initially diagnosed with Landau-Kleffner syndrome but have had markedly diverse outcomes in terms of the severity and type of compromise. Our data suggest that the initial diagnosis, according to current nosological categories, has almost no prognostic significance, while the length and the age of onset of CSWSS, the site of epileptiform activity Stromectol Dose and the individual neuropsychological profile are more useful for identifying the long-term outcome of patients with CSWSS.

Results indicated that youth with co-morbid DBD experienced greater improvement in manic symptoms in response to risperidone versus divalproex, whereas youth with non-co-morbid DBD experienced similar trajectories of symptom improvement in both medication groups. In addition, the non-DBD group experienced greater improvement in global functioning Artane Pills over time as compared with youth with co-morbid-DBD, and this gap increased over the course of treatment. Results also indicated that high-aggression youth experienced worse global functioning by end treatment versus low-aggression youth.

Rolandic discharge (RD), noted in the electroencephalography (EEG) of patients with benign epilepsy in childhood with centrotemporal spikes (BECCT) has several unique features. One feature is that the amount or frequency of RDs does not correlate well with the incidence of seizures in BECCT although it is a key finding in the diagnosis of this epileptic syndrome. In this study, we examined the efficacy of antiepileptic drugs focusing on the disappearance of RDs in relationship with seizure control. Forty patients with BECCT who were not medically treated prior to this study were randomly sorted into three groups. Twenty patients were assigned for clonazepam (CZP) treatment, 10 patients for valproate (VPA) and the remaining 10 patients for carbamazepine (CBZ). Each drug was administered for 4 consecutive weeks. EEGs were recorded twice during the study, before and 4 weeks after the medication trial. The effects of each treatment on RDs were assessed. RDs disappeared in 15 of the 20 cases treated with CZP (75%) within 4 weeks while the same was observed in only one of the 10 cases treated with VPA (10%). CBZ failed to demonstrate any effect on RD. In the group treated with CZP, there were no differences in seizure incidence, seizure type and blood concentration of CZP between the patients whose RDs disappeared and those whose RDs remained.
