This chapter provides a summary of a landmark study in epilepsy. What are the effectiveness of the newer anti-epileptic drugs against partial-onset seizures when compared to carbamazepine? Starting with that question, it describes the basics of the study, including funding, study location, who was studied, how many patients, study design, study intervention, follow-up, endpoints, results, and criticism and limitations. The researchers concluded that for patients with partial seizures, lamotrigine had the lowest rate of treatment failure compared to carbamazepine, gabapentin, and topiramate. The chapter briefly reviews other relevant studies and information, and concludes with a relevant clinical case.
