Abstract

The mainstay of treatment of epilepsy has been antiepileptic drugs; however, despite the emergence of new agents, a consistent proportion remain drug-resistant. Newer AEDs show promise. However, as it becomes clear that the epilepsies are a group of diseases rather than a single disorder the prospect of targeted treatment in some may become a reality.
