New epilepsy treatment in UK14th October 2008
A new type of treatment for epileptic patients known as Vimpat (lacosamide) has been launched in the UK.
More than 450,000 people in the UK suffer from epilepsy. Around one third continue to have seizures despite treatment. Professor Ley Sander said, "For the many patients not achieving adequate seizure control, epilepsy can have a serious affect on social, work and personal life. It is excellent news that we now have another therapeutic choice, which has been shown to be effective in a significant proportion of patients."
