Juvenile myoclonus epilepsy (JME) is a common epileptic syndrome, the etiology of which is genetically determined. Its onset occurs from 6 through 22 years of age, and affected patients present with myoclonic jerks, often associated with generalized tonic-clonic seizures - the most common association - and absence seizures. JME is non-progressive, and there are no abnormalities on clinical examination or intellectual deficits. Psychiatric disorders may coexist. Generalized polyspike-and-waves are the most characteristic electroencephalographic pattern. Usual neuroimaging studies show no abnormalities. Atypical presentations should be entertained, as they are likely to induce misdiagnosis. Prevention of precipitating factors and therapy with valproic acid (VPA) are able to control seizures in the great majority of patients. Whenever VPA is judged to be inappropriate, other antiepileptic drugs such as lamotrigine may be considered. Treatment should not be withdrawn, otherwise recurrences are frequent.

Ten individuals with bipolar disorder and 10 with schizoaffective disorder received quetiapine therapy. Overall, patients improved, with significant improvement in BPRS (p < .001), YMRS (p = .043), and HAM-D scores (p = .002). Simpson-Angus score also significantly decreased (p = .02). Overall. quetiapine was well tolerated by patients in this group with serious mood disorders. The mean +/- SD quetiapine dose was 202.9 +/- 124.3 mg/day (range, 50-400 mg/day). Mean weight gain was 10.9 lb (4.9 kg).

Significant increases in serum levels and decreases in hair copper levels have been previously described in epileptic patients treated with anticonvulsant drugs. A condition not directly related to copper nutriture, such as chronic treatment with these drugs, could increase the serum concentrations of copper and ceruloplasmin and would mask a possible copper deficiency produced by drug-increased biliary copper excretion. Serum immunoreactive ceruloplasmin concentration and its oxidase activity were determined in 90 adult epileptic patients treated with phenobarbital (n=60), phenytoin (n=70), carbamazepine (n=33) and valproic acid (n=8). The levels of ceruloplasmin and oxidase activity were significantly higher (P<0.001) than in an age and gender-matched control group (n=49). The significant correlations (P<0.01) between ceruloplasmin and the urinary excretion of D-glucaric acid, serum gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) and drug score in the patients group, would suggest that phenobarbital-type enzyme-inducing agents may increase the hepatic synthesis of ceruloplasmin. In 11 patients with a beta-globulin migrating GGT isoform (GGT3), a sensitive marker of cholestasis, the levels of ceruloplasmin, oxidase activity and total GGT activity were significantly higher (P<0.05) than in the group of 79 patients without the GGT3 isoform; consequently, in some cases a drug-induced cholestasis may also contribute to the increase of serum copper and ceruloplasmin. The values obtained for the specific oxidase activity of ceruloplasmin (activity per unit mass of enzyme protein) suggest that in the most of the cases, chronic administration of phenobarbital, phenytoin, carbamazepine or valproic acid, does not produce marginal or moderate copper deficiency.

LTG was the best, OXC was better than VPA only, while VPA was the worst. The others were equivalent for comparisons between five AEDs regarding the long-term treatment outcomes of monotherapy for adult patients with focal epilepsy in a clinical practice. For selecting AEDs for these patients among the first-line drugs, LTG is an appropriate first choice; others are reservation in the first-line but VPA is not.

Long-term antiepileptic drug (AED) use causes multiple abnormalities in calcium and bone metabolism that have been most extensively described in institutionalized patients. The objective is to determine the effect of AED on vitamin D levels and bone density in ambulatory patients and to compare the effects of enzyme-inducing and -noninducing AED and of single vs multiple therapy on bone density.

depakote drug information

In patients with epilepsy, treatment with valproate (VPA) has been reported to be associated with polycystic ovary syndrome-like symptoms including weight gain, hyperandrogenemia, and hyperinsulinemia. We examined the effect of VPA on androgen biosynthesis in ovarian theca cells isolated from follicles of normal cycling women to determine whether the hyperandrogenemia reported with VPA treatment could be a result of direct effects of VPA on the ovary. In long-term cultures of theca cells treated for 72 h with sodium valproate (30-3000 microm), we observed an increase in basal and forskolin-stimulated dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), androstenedione, and 17alpha-hydroxyprogesterone production compared with control values. In contrast, low doses of VPA treatment (i.e. 30-300 microm) had no effect on basal and forskolin-stimulated progesterone production, whereas higher doses of VPA (1000-3000 microm) inhibited progesterone production. The most pronounced effect of VPA on androgen biosynthesis was observed in the dose range of 300-3000 microm, which represent therapeutic levels in the treatment of epilepsy and bipolar disorder. Western analyses demonstrated that VPA treatment increased both basal and forskolin-stimulated P450c17 and P450scc protein levels, whereas the amount of steroidogenic acute regulatory protein was unaffected. In transient transfection studies, VPA was found to increase P450 17alpha-hydroxylase and P450 cholesterol side-chain cleavage promoter activity, whereas steroidogenic acute regulatory protein promoter activity was unaffected. Consistent with the ability of VPA to act as a histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor in other cell systems, VPA (500 microm) treatment was observed to increase histone H3 acetylation and P450 17alpha-hydroxylase mRNA accumulation. The HDAC inhibitor butyric acid (500 microm) similarly increased histone H3 acetylation and DHEA biosynthesis, whereas the VPA derivative valpromide (500 microm), which lacks HDAC inhibitory activity, had no effect on histone acetylation or DHEA biosynthesis. These data suggest that VPA-induced ovarian androgen biosynthesis results from changes in chromatin modifications (histone acetylation) that augment transcription of steroidogenic genes. These studies provide the first biochemical evidence to support a role for VPA in the genesis of polycystic ovary syndrome-like symptoms, and establish a direct link between VPA treatment and increased ovarian androgen biosynthesis.

A recent study has demonstrated an inverse correlation between serum valproic acid concentration in adolescents with epilepsy and quality of life, suggesting that cognitive and behavioral effects of anticonvulsants may significantly impact the life of patients with epilepsy and that intensive therapeutic drug monitoring may have a role in both reducing seizure frequency and improving health-related quality of life.

Valproic acid (VPA) is a small fatty acid used for treatment of different neurologic diseases such as epilepsy, migraines or bipolar disorders. VPA modulates different processes of cell metabolism that can lead to alterations in susceptibility of several cell types to the infection of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), as well as to exert an inhibitory effect on the replication of different enveloped viruses in cultured cells. Taken these data into account and the fact that HSV-1 has been involved in some neuropathies, we have characterized the effect of VPA on this herpesvirus infection of the differentiation/maturation-inducible human oligodendrocyte cell line HOG, which resulted more susceptible to VPA inhibition of virus growth after cell differentiation. In these cells, the role of VPA in virus entry was tackled. Incubation with VPA induced a slight but reproducible inhibition in the virus particles uptake mainly observed when the drug was added in the adsorption or early upon infection. In addition, transcription and expression of viral proteins were significantly downregulated in the presence of VPA. Remarkably, when the infective viral production was assessed, VPA dramatically blocked the detection of infectious HSV-1 particles. Herein, our results indicate that VPA treatment of HOG cells significantly reduces the effect of HSV-1 infection, virus entry and productivity without affecting cellular viability.

Comparison of the change in median VAS scores over 60 minutes revealed that sodium valproate was significantly less effective than prochlorperazine in reducing pain or nausea (P <.001). Median improvements in VAS pain scores (binomial confidence intervals) were as follows: 64.5 mm (48.1 to 75.6 mm) for prochlorperazine versus 9 mm (-3 to 39.6 mm) for sodium valproate. Median improvements in VAS nausea scores were as follows: 35.5 mm (13.2 to 47.9 mm) for prochlorperazine versus 2 mm (-1.3 to 11 mm) for sodium valproate. There was no significant difference (P =.603) detected in the median changes in VAS scores for sedation: -4 mm (-29.9 to 8.6 mm) for prochlorperazine versus 0 mm (-6.6 to 6 mm) for sodium valproate. Comparison of the mean VAS time curves for pain and nausea also demonstrated a significant difference (both P <.001) but not for sedation (P =.232). In post hoc analysis, valproate failed to elicit significant improvement in pain or nausea scores over time, whereas prochlorperazine improved pain by 30 minutes (P <.001) and nausea by 15 minutes (P =.002). At the conclusion of the study, 15 (79%) of 19 patients receiving valproate required rescue treatment compared with 5 (25%) of 20 patients receiving prochlorperazine (P <.001).

A >50% reduction in seizure frequency was observed in three of 20 patients given VPA and in four of 17 patients given LTG. Of the remaining 13 patients, four became seizure free, and an additional four experienced seizure reductions of 62-78% when VPA and LTG were given in combination. Mild tremor was observed in three patients receiving VPA and in all patients taking the VPA--LTG combination. In patients responding to combination therapy, optimized dosages and peak serum levels of both VPA and LTG were lower than those during separate administration.

DRESS syndrome (skin reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms) is an idiosyncratic drug reaction characterized by rash, fever, lymphadenopathy, and internal organ dysfunction. This case report is on a patient with bipolar affective disorder who presented with a systemic inflammatory response associated with the use of valproic acid, and an important activation of symptoms when used with other drugs with a different pharmacological action mechanism. The diagnosis of DRESS syndrome is primarily by exclusion, and its detection may be difficult, which could potentially become fatal for the patient.

In the first evaluation, the mean serum thyroid hormone concentrations were lower in the girls taking CBZ [thyroxine (T4), 70.2; SD, 10.9 nM; and free thyroxine (FT4), 11.5; SD, 1.8 pM] or OXC (T4, 74.9; SD, 16.4 nM; and FT4, 11.3; SD, 1.8 pM) than in the control girls (T4, 96.6; SD, 15.1 nM, and FT4, 14.4; SD, 1.5 pM; p < 0.001, all comparisons). However, thyrotropin (TSH) concentrations were normal in the girls taking CBZ or OXC. Sixty-three% of the girls taking CBZ and 67% of the girls taking OXC had serum T4 and/or FT4 levels below the lower limit of the reference range. The VPA-treated girls with epilepsy had normal serum T4 and FT4 concentrations, but slightly increased TSH levels (3.3; SD, 1.5 mU/L; p < 0.01) compared with the control girls (2.5; SD, 1.0 mU/L). Normal serum hormone concentrations were restored in the patients who discontinued the medication.

The use of valproic acid (VPA) (also known as Depakote, Depakene, and others) frequently results in elevated plasma ammonia. In some people, hyperammonemia may be clinically significant, resulting in hyperammonemic encephalopathy, which may be severe. Valproic acid-induced hyperammonemic encephalopathy may occur in people with normal liver function, despite normal doses and serum levels of VPA. We describe 2 cases of valproic acid-induced hyperammonemic encephalopathy in patients with supratherapeutic VPA levels, although the condition has been described in people with normal VPA levels. With the increasing indications and off-label uses of VPA, family physicians should be aware of this potential complication of VPA and check ammonia levels in patients taking VPA who present with alterations in mental status. Treatment with L-carnitine may be beneficial in reducing ammonia levels.

LTG pharmacokinetics was evaluated using single-dose LTG (25 mg) given before and following low-dose VPA co-medication (125, 250, 375, 500 mg per day VPA) in healthy subjects. Serial blood samples were obtained over 120 h post-dose in order to calculate LTG kinetic parameters including area under the concentration-time curve, apparent oral clearance, elimination half-life and percent inhibition of LTG clearance at each dosage level of VPA. Pharmacodynamic modeling was used to calculate EC(50) values for this interaction.

A total of 770 steady-state serum concentration samples was analysed. These were collected during VPA therapy from 255 children, aged 0.1-14 years and weighting 4-74 kg. Age, total body weight (TBW), VPA daily dose, sex and comedication with carbamazepine (CBZ) were considered as covariates. Population analysis was made with NONMEM program, assuming a one-compartment model, fixing the VPA absorption rate, bioavailability and distribution volume at values found in the literature. The results of the population pharmacokinetics analysis were validated in a group of 45 epileptic patients.

The present study investigated the effect of HDAC inhibitors on the differentiation of human subcutaneous white adipocytes. Results showed that trichostatin A, suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid, valproic acid and MS-275 inhibited triglyceride accumulation, GPDH activity buy depakote and FABP4 protein expression in adipocytes, as well as leptin and VEGF release, while cells retained a fibroblast-like morphology. HDAC inhibitors exerted their antiadipogenic effect without inducing apoptosis or affecting cell viability and number, while 1-2 log unit higher concentrations were mostly required to exert an antiproliferative effect or to reduce LDH activity. A brief exposure to HDAC inhibitors at the beginning of the differentiation program was sufficient to observe the antiadipogenic effect while differentiation restarted after compound withdrawal and further exposure to inducers of differentiation demonstrating reversibility of the events. HDAC inhibitors hyperacetylated histone H4, but only hydroxamate-based compounds produced a massive acetylation of alpha-tubulin, indicating that this latter event is not required to prevent adipose conversion. HDAC inhibitors induced a significant reduction of the expression of the transcription factor C/EBPalpha, an early marker of differentiation, and a diminution of fibronectin immunoreactivity was also observed. In conclusion, HDAC inhibitors from different chemical classes potently inhibited human adipose conversion at an early stage of the differentiation program.

The loading dosage of intravenous valproate required to achieve a desired serum concentration in neonates is not known. Two neonates with seizures received loading doses of intravenous valproate over 30 minutes. Serum valproate concentrations were measured 45 minutes and 3 hours after initiation of the infusion. Both neonates had received phenobarbital and phenytoin before the loading infusions. In the first patient, a loading dose of intravenous valproate of 10 mg/kg increased the 45-minute postinfusion serum valproate concentration to 41 microg/mL with a 3-hour postinfusion serum valproate concentration of 33 microg/mL. In the second patient, a loading dose of 25 mg/kg increased the 45-minute postinfusion serum valproic buy depakote acid concentration to 100 microg/mL with a 3-hour postinfusion serum valproic acid concentration of 78 microg/mL. We found that each 1 mg/kg of intravenous valproate increased the 45-minute and 3-hour postinfusion serum valproic acid concentrations by approximately 4 microg/mL and 3 microg/mL, respectively. We suggest that these figures be used to calculate the desirable loading dose of intravenous valproate in neonates until larger studies are conducted. The volume of distribution and the serum clearance of valproate were approximately 0.245 L/kg and 25 mL/h/kg, respectively.

Compared to pre-treatment and control levels, the mean TC and FC were lower (p<0.001) while ammonia (p buy depakote <0.01), AC (p<0.05) and AC/FC ratio (p<0.01) were higher. In the treated group of epileptics, TC and FC were negatively associated with ammonia (r=-0.896, p<0.0001; r=-0.935, p<0.0001). Significant associations were found between FC and AC/FC levels and patient's age (FC; r=0.457, p<0.05, AC/FC; r=-0.435, p<0.05) and dose of VPA (FC; r=-0.753, p<0.001, AC/FC; r=0.591, p<0.01). Ammonia was correlated with patients' age (r=-0.532, p<0.01) and dose of VPA (r=0.673, p<0.01). The abnormal ammonia and carnitine levels were returned to normal after L-carnitine supplementation.

1. Our previous in vitro studies suggest that inhibition of the acylpeptide hydrolase (APEH) activity as valproic acid glucuronide (VPA-G) hydrolase by carbapenems in human liver cytosol is a key process for clinical drug-drug interaction (DDI) of valproic acid (VPA) with carbapenems. Here, we investigated whether in vivo DDI of VPA with meropenem (MEPM) was caused via inhibition of APEH in dogs. 2. More rapid decrease of plasma VPA levels and increased urinary excretion of VPA-G were observed after co-administration with MEPM compared with those after without co-administration, whereas the plasma level and bile excretion of VPA-G showed no change. 3. Dog VPA-G hydrolase activity, inhibited by carbapenems, was mainly located in cytosol from both the liver and kidney. APEH-immunodepleted cytosols lacked VPA-G hydrolase activity. Hepatic and renal APEH activity was negligible even at 24 h after dosing of MEPM to a dog. 4. In conclusion, DDI of VPA with carbapenems in dogs is caused by long-lasting inhibition of APEH-mediated VPA-G hydrolysis by carbapenems, which could explain the delayed recovery of plasma VPA buy depakote levels to the therapeutic window even after discontinuation of carbapenems in humans.

Anticonvulsant hypersensitivity syndrome (AHS) is characterised by fever, skin rashes and involvement of the internal organs. Owing to the low frequency with which it appears and its high clinical heterogeneity buy depakote , it is not always suspected. Moreover, the symptoms often overlap with those of a vasculitis or of an infection. The most commonly associated antiepileptic drugs (AED) are the aromatic agents. We report the case of a female patient who developed AHS with several different AED and presented an especially severe kidney and skin disorder due to carbamazepine (CBZ).

Good performance and comparability of the drug assays was seen on all systems for carbamazepine, phenytoin, and valproic acid except for phenytoin on the Dimension Vista. Deviations from the acceptance criteria were found with digoxin, phenobarbital, theophylline, tobramycin Prednisone 8 Tablets , and vancomycin. Despite a change of the analytical principle on the Roche systems for most drugs, the results demonstrated a very good between-system comparability of the concentration measured. Systematic deviations were found between AxSYM and ARCHITECT for digoxin, phenobarbital, and tobramycin, and between Dimension Xpand and Dimension Vista for digoxin and vancomycin.

Because youth are still developing at the time of psychotropic drug exposure, most reference values need to be adjusted for gender and age. As in adults, youngsters receiving lithium require monitoring for thyroid dysfunction. Psychostimulants appear to cause mild reversible growth retardation in some patients, most likely because of decreased weight or slowing of expected weight gain; some patients may experience clinically significant reductions in adult height. Although still Flomax Pill controversial, valproate use has been associated with an increased risk for polycystic ovary syndrome, in addition to causing weight gain. Although more data are required, children and adolescents appear to be at higher risk than adults for antipsychotic-induced hyperprolactinemia, weight gain, and possibly, associated metabolic abnormalities, which is of particular concern.

Exposure to oxcarbazepine stimulated linear growth in epileptic patients through mechanisms involving the release of insulin-like growth factor-1 and insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-3. In contrast, expo-sure to valproate did not affect linear growth, but did lead to a decrease in serum ghrelin levels.

Over 50% of adults and children/adolescents had low 25-OHD levels, but this finding did not correlate with BMD. Antiepileptic therapy decreased BMD in adults. Generalized seizures, duration of epilepsy, and polypharmacy were significant determinants of BMD, more so at skeletal sites enriched in cortical bone. Subjects on enzyme-inducing drugs such as phenytoin, phenobarbital, carbamazepine, and primidone tended to have lower BMD than those on noninducers such as valproic acid, lamotrigine, clonazepam, gabapentin, topamirate, and ethosuximide.

Status epilepticus is an emergency situation that can often lead to death or neurocognitive deficits despite adequate therapy is conducted. Etiology and prognosis can be widely heterogeneous. Knowledge of the basic pathophysiologic mechanisms has altered the definition of status epilepticus and the emphasis of therapy has also changed according to that. Today, with neuroprotective approach and recognition of the importance of time-window the management of generalised tonic clonic status became an emergency or critical care task, because intratracheal narcosis is more often and earlier the therapy of choice and even the sufficient treatment can convey serious side effects. In the article, the authors describe the systemic and cerebral pathophysiologic factors during seizure. The authors offer flow-charts illustrating the treatment of patients with generalised tonic clonic status to make the daily work of physicians easier. Early on critical care treatment and multidisciplinary approach is the pledge of reduction in mortality and morbidity.

Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disability with impairments of social interaction and communication, and repetitive behavior. Reelin is an extracellular glycoprotein that is essential for neuronal migration and brain development. Neuroprotective effects of exercise on various brain insults are well documented, however, the effects of exercise on autism in relation with reelin expression are not clarified. In the present study, we investigated the effects of treadmill exercise on the functional recovery and on the expressions of reelin and its downstream molecules, phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K), phosphorylated Akt (p-Akt), phosphorylated extracellular signal-regulated protein kinase 1 and 2 (p-ERK1/2), using autistic rats. For the induction of autism-like animal model, 400 mg/kg valproic acid was subcutaneously injected into the rats on the postnatal day 14. The rat in the treadmill exercise groups were forced to run on a treadmill for 30 min once a day, five times a week for 4 weeks, starting postnatal day 28. To investigate autism-like behaviors and memory deficit, open field, social interaction, and radial 8-arm maze were performed. Immunohistochemistry and western blotting were conducted. In the present results, treadmill exercise alleviated aggressive tendency and improved correct decision in the spatial learning memory in the autistic rats. Treadmill exercise increased neurogenesis and the expressions of reelin and its down-stream molecules, PI3K, p-Akt, and p-ERK1/2, in the hippocampus of the autistic rats. The present study showed that treadmill exercise ameliorated aggressive behavior and improved spatial learning memory through activation of reeling signaling pathway in the valproic acid-induced autistic rats.
