New clinical models for predicting drug resistance in people with genetic generalized epilepsy

Takeaway

  • Three new models were tested to assess accuracy at predicting epileptic drug (AED) resistance in individuals with genetic generalized epilepsy (GGE); for all models, predictive ability was moderate, but a distinct correlation was found between AED resistance and women with catamenial epilepsy.

Why this matters

    Anticipating drug resistance in individuals with GGE could assist patient treatment by personalizing treatment early.
