QX-314 was used to block voltage-gated sodium channels, i.e. prevent action potential propagation. The compound develops its effect in 1 microM concentration, in use-dependent mode. Figure: EPSC evoked by electrical stimulation in hippocampal pyramidal neuron at positive membrane potential (+40 mV); QX-314 is added to intracellular solution.

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.
