Abstract

Background Stiripentol is an antiseizure medication with multiple potential mechanisms of action, indicated as adjunctive therapy in people with Dravet syndrome, whose seizures are not adequately controlled with clobazam and valproate. However, there are scattered data on its efficacy in other epilepsy aetiologies and types. We previously reported our single-centre experience on the efficacy of adjunctive stiripentol treatment in a cohort of 132 patients with different types of refractory epilepsies.
