Management of childhood epilepsy has been proven to have different issues from those in adults, primarily related to the growth and development processes that may affect or be affected by epilepsy treatment. In addition, epilepsy in childhood is more varied than epilepsy in adults and includes many different syndromes (many qualifying as rare diseases), most of which exhibit a different clinical course and respond differently to therapy.
Meridian is now conducting a clinical research study for an investigational medication for children with epilepsy.
