CURE Epilepsy: Treatment Talk
Our friends at CURE Epilepsy are hosting a series called “Treatment Talk”. This is a social-media broadcast highlighting conditions related to epilepsy and options available for the treatment of related seizures and their side effects.
This “Treatment Talk” will focus on Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS), a severe form of childhood epilepsy that arises during infancy or early childhood, and the use of the drug fenfluramine to treat patients diagnosed with LGS. Featuring Dr. Michael Chez, a pediatric neurologist at Sutter Health, and Heather Bushey, a parent whose son has LGS and is a patient of Dr. Chez. Viewers will learn more about how LGS is diagnosed, common seizure types and comorbidities associated with LGS, how fenfluramine works to reduce some of these seizure types, and any risks and benefits found in recent clinical trials featuring fenfluramine.
This “Treatment Talk” will premiere on the CURE Epilepsy Facebook page on July 25 at 12 pm CST. Be sure to mark yourself as “interested” or “going” on the premiere event page to get notifications when “Treatment Talk” debuts.
