Community-based study results:
Each year, seizures injure 10 percent of people with epilepsy

A study using data on 819 people from the Tasmanian Epilepsy Registry found lifetime seizure-related injury rates of 43.1% and annual rates of 9.9%. Head injuries and water immersion were the most frequent dangers, and the home was the most common injury environment. Even one seizure in a year increased the risk for injury. The study was published Feb 5 online in Epilepsia.

A Life Electric melds stories, statistics and commentary on the global reach of epilepsy

To coincide with International Epilepsy Day on February 11, Scots production company Storm Features released A Life Electric, an online experience that aims to increase epilepsy awareness. The website features 51 “chapters” about epilepsy and its treatment, as well as interviews with professionals who treat the condition and people with epilepsy, such as powerlifter Jessica Marie McCallum (pictured left). IBE provided support for the project.

Seizure Editors Choice Article - January 2019

Seizure 2018, Vol 64, Editor’s Choice: “Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy: The Neuro-Cardio-Respiratory Connection”

Many still think of epilepsy as a disorder characterised by abnormal discharges in cortical neurons. Despite steadily accumulating evidence, the involvement of subcortical and brain stem structures in ictal physiological changes (and their interictal consequences) is still not widely appreciated. In the cortical interpretation of epilepsy, the autonomic nervous system is a phylogenetically ancient feature of the brain, which largely operates on “autopilot” and is quite separate from the parts and networks of the brain that are of interest to epileptologists. However, this understanding of epilepsy cannot really be upheld. For instance, recent studies have shown ictal effects on serotonergic pathways in the brainstem closely involved in respiratory control (1). Recurrent seizures may lead to persistent changes of interictal functioning of the ascending reticular activating system in the brainstem (2).

My Editor’s Choice selection from the current issue of Seizure, a narrative review by T. A. Manolis et al., demonstrates that the involvement of the autonomic nervous system in epileptic seizures is not just of interest to neuroanatomists or physiologists (3).  The close links between ictal cortical discharges and brain networks involved in the control of heart rate, blood pressure and breathing are likely to be highly relevant in the aetiology of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). For some time SUDEP has been acknowledged as the commonest cause of death in younger adults with epilepsy (4). Recent evidence demonstrating the absence of any post-mortem signs of drowning in many individuals with epilepsy who died in the bath, suggests that SUDEP may be an even commoner cause of death than once thought (5). The comprehensive overview of the seizure-related changes in the brain which affect the functioning of the autonomic nervous system should help to correct the “corticocentric” view of epilepsy and demonstrates that a wider understanding of this disorder will be needed if we want to stop more people from dying in the context of epileptic seizures in the future.

 Seizure 2018, Том 64, Вибір редактора: "Раптова Непередбачувана Смерть при Епілепсії: Нейро-кардіо-респіраторне З'єднання

     Багато хто все ще вважає, що епілепсія – це  розлад, який характеризується аномальними розрядами в кортикальних нейронах. Незважаючи на постійне накопичення доказів, участь субкортикальних і стовбурових структур головного мозку в іктальних фізіологічних змінах (та їх інтеріктальні наслідкі) досі не отримала широкого визнання. У кортикальній інтерпретації епілепсії вегетативна нервова система є філогенетично більш давньою системою головного мозку, яка значною мірою працює на "автоматично" і абсолютно відокремлена від часток і мереж мозку, які представляють інтерес для епілептологів. Проте, таке розуміння епілепсії не може бути підтверджено. Наприклад, нещодавні дослідження показали іктальний вплив на серотонінергічні шляхи в стовбурі головного мозку, безпосередньо залученому до контролю дихання (1). Напади, що повторюються, можуть призвести до стійких змін інтеріктального функціонування висхідної ретикулярної активаційної системи в стовбурі мозку (2).

     Мій редакційний вибір із поточного випуску «Seizeres», а саме описового огляду Т. A. Manolis et al., демонструє, що залучення вегетативної нервової системи в епілептичних нападах представляє інтерес не тільки для нейроанатомів або фізіологів (3). Тісний зв'язок між розрядами кори головного мозку та мережами головного мозку, які беруть участь у контролі серцевого ритму, артеріального тиску та дихання, можуть бути дуже актуальними в етіології раптової непередбачуваної смерті при епілепсії (SUDEP). Протягом деякого часу SUDEP був визнаний найпоширенішою причиною смерті серед молодих людей з епілепсією (4). Нещодавні докази, які демонструють відсутність будь-яких посмертних ознак утоплення у багатьох людей з епілепсією, померлих у ванні, свідчать про те, що SUDEP може бути навіть більш поширеною причиною смерті, ніж колись вважали (5). Всебічний огляд змін у мозку, пов'язаних з нападами, які впливають на функціонування вегетативної нервової системи, повинен допомогти виправити «кортикоцентрический» погляд на епілепсію і продемонструвати, що більш широке розуміння цього розладу буде необхідно, якщо ми хочемо зменшити кількість людей від смерті в контексті епілептичних нападів у майбутньому.

Future of epilepsy surgery | CIFE trial in India
ILAE2018_Epigraph_Banner for web

Latest from Epigraph

Healthcare-Stethoscope-icon

Surgery can cure epilepsy, but it’s rarely used. For example, in the United States, only about 1% of people with epilepsy will ever be evaluated for surgery, and fewer than that undergo it. At the same time, some centers oversell surgery, offering it to patients without explaining the full range of consequences.

What is the future of epilepsy surgery?
 

health-care-hand

In India, the Community Interventions For Epilepsy (CIFE) trial has enrolled 255 people with epilepsy in impoverished communities. They are randomized to receive either usual care, or monthly visits in their homes from primary health care personnel, who provide epilepsy medications, education and counseling. The hope is to improve medication adherence, reduce stigma and promote self-management.

ПОДВОЇТИ КІЛЬКІСТЬ КЛІНІЧНИХ ДОСЛІДЖЕНЬ В УКРАЇНІ

 

Подвоїти до 2023 року кількість клінічних досліджень в Україні — таку амбітну мету задекларували учасники Першого з’їзду Української асоціації клінічних досліджень, який відбувся 17 жовтня 2018 року в Міжнародному конгрес-центрі «Український дім» (м. Київ).

У заході взяли участь близько 400 фахівців з усієї України, представники фармацевтичних компаній і контрактних дослідницьких організацій, Міністерства охорони здоров’я (МОЗ) України, Державного експертного центру МОЗ України, депутати Верховної Ради.

На думку експертів, переваги клінічних досліджень очевидні: для десятків тисяч українських пацієнтів це шанс покращити здоров’я, тривалість і якість життя, які їм нездатне забезпечити стандартне лікування; для країни — можливість зекономити сотні мільйонів гривень щорічно; для  закладів, що активно залучені до проведення клінічних досліджень, — можливість вдосконалити інфраструктуру і покращити якість надання медичної допомоги, а ще — це можливість створювати нові робочі місця і стримувати трудову міграцію кваліфікованого персоналу.

В інших державах підрахували, що кожен 1 долар, інвестований в проведення клінічних досліджень, повертається державі у вигляді майже 6 доларів різних суспільних благ, а загальні надходження від такої діяльності можуть сягати 0,2% ВВП країни.

Натомість Україна не тільки недостатньо використовує свій потенціал, але й ризикує втратити можливості для подальшого розвитку сфери клінічних досліджень через незадовільний стан нормативно-правового регулювання їх проведення та пресинг із боку правоохоронних і контролюючих органів. У результаті може сформуватися імідж України як держави, «токсичної» для міжнародних замовників та інвесторів.

Учасники заходу розглянули багато гострих питань, пов’язаних із діяльністю у сфері клінічних досліджень. Зокрема, вказали на невідповідність/непослідовність деяких положень чинного законодавства сутності клінічного дослідження як науково-дослідної роботи, яка не є тотожною медичній допомозі та низку відповідних негативних наслідків; обговорили особливості використання первинної медичної документації, не повністю врегульованих чинним законодавством, та нормативна невизначеність застосування шаблонних форм медичної документації.

Учасники з’їзду прийняли рішення створити робочу групу для напрацювання пропозицій стосовно удосконалення законодавства, до якої мають увійти представники ГО «Українська асоціація клінічних досліджень», Державного експертного центру МОЗ України, Європейської Бізнес Асоціації. Заплановано звернення до Прем’єр-міністра України та Генерального прокурора України з листом щодо фактів перешкоджання правоохоронними органами проведенню клінічних випробувань та можливих негативних наслідків, до МОЗ — з пропозицією розробити Методичні рекомендації щодо використання форм первинної медичної документації під час клінічного випробування.

У найближчих планах УАКД — здійснювати просвітницьку роботу серед населення з метою формування позитивного іміджу клінічних досліджень та ініціювати освітні заходи для підвищення обізнаності правоохоронців стосовно їх проведення.

Neonatal Seizure Classification

ILAELogo2016-white-300dpi

The ILAE Task Force on Neonatal Seizures has created a classification for seizures in the neonate, which is intended to become the ILAE position on the classification for seizures in this age group. 

As part of the approval and adoption process the League asks its members to review and comment on the proposed classification.  These comments from our international community will then be reviewed by an independent task force, which will then amend the proposed classification to be in line with the suggestions from the community. By policy, the manuscript will be open for comments for approximately two months, until October 15.

League Updates Region Names

6 regions

It was brought to the Executive Committee that the identification of ILAE regions as “Commission on [Region] Affairs” created the perception that the commissions were some form of governmental agency.

After discussion, the Committee decided to rename the commissions. Each region is managed by an Executive Board with its current officers. These new region names are effective immediately; please use them in your communications.
