Dravet Syndrome: Emerging Insights, New Treatment Approaches

Format: Webcast

Dravet syndrome (DS), a rare form of epilepsy, occurs in approximately 1 in 20,000 live births and is associated with a significant humanistic and economic burden on caregivers, families, and patients. While many medications are used in treating the seizures associated with DS, there are currently no FDA-approved treatments, and nearly all patients continue to have uncontrolled seizures and other medical needs throughout their lifetime. Several investigational therapies are in late-stage development with the potential to provide new treatment options to address the serious medical needs for patients with DS.

In Focus: Advances in Non-Oral Modalities for the Treatment of Acute Migraine

Format: Webcast

 Migraine treatment includes both preventive therapy, aimed at reducing attack frequency and severity, and acute therapy, for aborting attacks. For acute therapy, the most widely used drugs are NSAIDs and triptans. Routes of triptan administration include oral, intranasal, suppository, subcutaneous, and transdermal iontophoretic, as well as a variety of device-enhanced delivery options. Relatively slow onset of action remains a limitation for these formulations, except for the injectable delivery. Novel routes of delivery, such as intradermal, are in development, holding the promise of rapid absorption into the systemic circulation and, thus, rapid relief. Ultimately, the abundance of delivery options provides more choices to patients with migraine.
