Inhibitor of neuronal voltage-gated Na+ channels. Exhibits anticonvulsant activity. Potentiates GABA-induced Cl- currents in HEK 293 cells expressing the GABAA receptor α1β2γ2 subtype combination. Can induce autophagy by inhibiting inositol synthesis. Also delays disease onset and prolongs survival in a mouse amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) model, as well as reducing motor neuron loss and altered muscle morphology.

Epilepsy is a brain disease that affects 60 million people globally. More than 20 anti-seizure drugs are currently available, but these do not address the underlying causes of the condition. This poster summarizes current knowledge about the development of the condition and highlights some approaches that have disease-modifying effects in proof-of-concept studies.
