About Epilepsy Clinical Trials

Epilepsy, a neurological condition affecting millions worldwide, requires ongoing research to develop effective treatments. We are currently conducting Epilepsy Clinical Trials in Rochester Hills Michigan, aiming to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an investigational medication in adult males and females (age 18 to 75) with epilepsy-related symptoms. With over 3.4 million Americans living with epilepsy, your participation can contribute to groundbreaking advancements in epilepsy care.

The Epilepsy Clinical Study’s treatment phase for participants will last for 24 weeks. To ensure study eligibility, all participants must comply with all study procedures. Participants who meet the eligibility criteria after undergoing an 8-week observation phase and are chosen to participate will be given 12 weeks of double-blind active treatment. We’re looking into the safety and efficacy of an oral investigational drug used to treat uncontrollable seizures in epilepsy.

*There is no cost to you, your private medical insurance, or the public health insurance plan for study procedures. The study drug, related procedures, and visits will be provided at no charge for the duration of the Focal Epilepsy Clinical Study.
