Future antiepileptic drug development

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

4 Scopus citations


The last decade has seen an explosion in the number of antiepileptic drugs approved. Despite these advances, however, there are still other basic mechanisms of epilepsy that could be the targets of new agents. This article discusses some of these novel sites for possible antiepileptic drug action in the context of the available data supporting the various mechanisms. While not all of these investigations will be translated into clinically useful agents, there is still great unrealized potential for the development of new and novel antiepileptic compounds.
