Spain-Based Study: Epidyolex Safely Helps Prevent Seizures

Article published by Dravet Syndrome News

The efficacy and safety of Epidiolex, an oral cannabidiol, in children and adults with Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) were supported in a real-world setting, with benefits similar to those seen in previous clinical trials and expanded access programs (EAPs), a Spanish EAP study reported.

EAPs are designed to make promising therapies available to eligible patients in the real-world setting before their regulatory approval.

The study, “Outcomes from a Spanish Expanded Access Program on cannabidiol treatment in pediatric and adult patients with epilepsy,” was published in the journal Epilepsy & Behavior.
