Epilepsy ranks second only to stroke as the most common serious neurological condition in the United States. Partial onset seizures are the most common type of seizure experienced by people with epilepsy. If you or someone you care about is living with epilepsy and continuing to experience siezures, even with treatment, you may want to consider participating in a clinical research trial. Without these research studies, we would be unable to provide new drugs and medical devices to benefit others living with epilepsy.
