FDA Clears Smart Watch to Detect Seizures, Manage Epilepsy FDA Clears Smart Watch to Detect Seizures, Manage Epilepsy

The FDA has cleared the first smart watch for seizure tracking and epilepsy management. The device uses advanced machine learning to identify convulsive seizures and send an alert via text and phone message to caregivers.FDA Approvals

Belgian neurostimulation device developer Synergia Medical said this week it raised $10 million (EU €8.1 million) in a Series A round to help support its NAOS vagus nerve stimulation device designed to treat drug-resistant epilepsy. The NAOS system is a small-form, MRI-safe implanted neurostimulation device designed to stimulate the vagus nerve, with traditional wires replaced by optical fibers and photovoltaic cells that convert monochromatic optical energy into electrical impulses. Funds from the round will support final testing of the NAOS device as the company pursues CE Mark submission, Synergia Medical said. The...

Conclusion Lesional epilepsy is associated with decreased HrQoL in patients with stroke. We identified HrQoL-determinants, which would improve the management of patients with poststroke epilepsy. These determinants include proper adjustment of AEDs with reduction of seizure frequency, treatment of depression, and focused rehabilitation programs for poststroke epilepsy.

In 2016, we described that missense variants in parts of exons 30 and 31 of CREBBP can cause a phenotype that differs from Rubinstein–Taybi syndrome (RSTS). Here we report on another 11 patients with variants in this region of CREBBP (between bp 5,128 and 5,614) and two with variants in the homologous region of EP300. None of the patients show characteristics typical for RSTS. The variants were detected by exome sequencing using a panel for intellectual disability in all but one individual, in whom Sanger sequencing was performed upon clinical recognition of the entity. The main characteristics of the patients are de...

In this study, we investigated the role of innate inflammation in anin vitro model of post-traumatic epileptogenesis. We combined organotypic hippocampal slice cultures, representing anin vitro model of post-traumatic epilepsy, with multi-electrode array recordings to directly monitor the development of epileptiform activity and to examine the concomitant changes in cytokine release, cell death, and glial cell activation. We report that synchronized ictal- and interictal-like activities spontaneously evolve in this culture. Dynamic changes in the release of the pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-1 β, TNFα, and IL-6 w...
