IMPACT OF BANZEL® ON SEIZURE SEVERITY RATING

Significant improvement in seizure severity was reported with BANZEL® in the pivotal trial*†‡

Seizure severity scale of the global evaluation*†‡1,2

Shows the impact of BANZEL on the seizure severity rating. BANZEL showed significant improvement in the seizure severity rating in the pivotal trial. BANZEL patient experienced a 53.4% (N=39) improvement in the seizure severity scale of the global evaluation compared to 30.6% (N=19) of those on placebo. This was a primary efficacy endpoint. This assessment was based on a 7-point scale performed by the parent/guardian at the end of the double-blind phase. Categories were: No change: 0; Improved: 1,2,3 (minimally improved, much improved, very much improved, espectively); Worsened: -3, -2, -1 (very much worse, much worse, minimally worse, respectively).

  • A 12-week, randomized, double-blind, multicenter, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial to assess the effectiveness of BANZEL (rufinamide) to reduce inadequately controlled seizures associated with LGS in patients (N=138, intent to treat) being treated with 1-3 concomitant stable-dose AEDs1-3
  • The primary efficacy variables were the percent change in total seizure frequency per 28 days, the percent change in tonic-atonic (drop attacks) seizure frequency per 28 days, and the seizure severity rating from the parent/guardian global evaluation of the patient's condition1
  • All 3 primary endpoints met the prespecified statistical criteria for effectiveness1
