AAN 2024 | HEP2: seizure frequency decreases over time in patients with treatment-resistant epilepsy

Jacqueline French, MD, NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, New York, NY, discusses the Human Epilepsy Project 2 (HEP2) study, a multi-center study examining longitudinal seizure patterns in patients with treatment-resistant focal epilepsy. The study indicates a decline in seizure frequency over time, yet it remains uncertain whether this translates to improved quality of life (QoL). Prof. French emphasizes that therapies previously considered disease-modifying due to reduced seizure activity may not actually alter the course of the disease. To ascertain which drugs are genuinely disease-modifying, they must be compared to a control group. This interview took place at the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting 2024 in Denver, CO.
