Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, previously known as idiopathic generalized epilepsy, is a form of generalized epilepsy whose cause is presumed to be genetic in origin. The first seizure typically occurs between the ages of 5-12, and symptoms may improve after the fourth decade of life. Seizure may be of different subtypes, including absence, myoclonic, and tonic-clonic. Find the latest research on juvenile myoclinic epilepsy here.

Dravet syndrome, previously known as severe myoclonic epilepsy of infancy (SMEI), is a rare, catastrophic, lifelong form of epilepsy with frequent and/or prolonged seizures that are often triggered by hot temperatures or fever. Discover the latest research on Dravet syndrome here.

Drug Resistant Epilepsy

Drug-resistant epilepsy, also known as refractory or pharmacoresistant epilepsy, is defined as failure of adequate trials of two appropriate and tolerated antiepileptic drugs (as monotherapies or in combination) to achieve sustained seizure freedom. Discover the latest research on drug-resistant epilepsy here.

Early Myoclonic Encephalopathy

Early myoclonic encephalopathy is an epileptic syndrome typically diagnosed by three months of age. It is characterized by frequent seizures and severe early encephalopathy and has a severely reduced life expectancy. Causes can include metabolic abnormalities or genetic mutations.
