BTTC11-01: Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial of Lacosamide for Seizure Prophylaxis in Patients With High-Grade Gliomas

Cancer - Brain
Principal Investigator: Tobias Walbert, MD

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if an antiepileptic (anti-seizure) treatment will prevent seizures in patients with brain tumors who have not yet had a seizure. Anti-seizure drugs are designed to decrease abnormal electrical activity in the brain that plays a role in developing seizures.

In this study, lacosamide will be used as an anti-seizure medication. Lacosamide will be compared to a placebo.

A placebo is not a drug. It looks like the study drug but is not designed to treat any disease or illness. It is designed to be compared with a study drug to learn if the study drug has any real effect.

  1. Patients must be 18 years or older.
  2. Patients with histologically confirmed supratentorial high-grade glioma will be eligible for this protocol.
  3. All patients must sign an informed consent indicating that they are aware of the investigational nature of this study.
