SEATTLE, March 25, 2021, (PHARMIWEB) — Global Dravet Syndrome Treatment Market

Dravet syndrome (DS), also known as epilepsy with polymorphic seizures and polymorphic epilepsy in infancy (PMEI), is a severe and rare genetic dysfunction of the brain (epileptic encephalopathy). It usually begins in the initial years of life and remains throughout the lifetime. Children suffering from the Dravet syndrome experience different types of seizures, namely, myoclonic seizures, tonic-clonic seizures, absence seizures, atypical absence seizures, atonic seizures, focal aware or impaired awareness seizures (previously called partial seizures), and status epilepticus. Generally, a combination of drugs is prescribed for the treatment of Dravet syndrome. Anticonvulsants, including stiripentol, topiramate, and Valproic acid, are the most commonly used drugs for treatment of this condition. In particular cases, where the intensity of the seizures are not reduced by medication, certain devices are used to do the same. For instance, vagal nerve stimulation device is one such device that delivers electrical impulses to the vagus nerve.
