Presidential Symposium 2015: Getting to Cure — The Challenging Road to Disease Modification and Prevention for Epilepsy

Recorded December 5, 2015 at the 69th Annual Meeting of AES.

Epilepsy care has focused on symptomatic treatment, that is, control of seizures. Modification of disease progression, underway in other clinical areas, has not been a focus of epilepsy research until recent years. Translation from the bench to the clinic requires collaboration among scientists, clinical researchers and clinicians. This symposium addresses the development of clinical trials for disease modifying therapies including issues which can adversely impact successful outcomes.

Learning Objectives
Following participation in this symposium, learners should be able to:
• Recognize role of treatments which can result in disease modification and be aware of research into such treatments
• Collaborate on the development of appropriate studies to evaluate potential disease-modifying treatments

Target Audience
Basic, Intermediate and Advanced

Note, this recording does not include “The Road Less Traveled: Novel Approaches to Successful Translation of Disease-modifying Therapy” presented by Kate Dawson, MD.
