Recruitment of Epileptic Dogs for Seizure Drug Study Continues -- All
Breeds The clinical trial demonstrating the possible effectiveness of the
pharmaceutical drug Keppra as an additional therapy in the treatment
of canine epilepsy aims to recruit 10-15 more dogs to complete this
important study in canine epilepsy. Dr. Karen Munana, principal
investigator of the study notes that initial results demonstrate that
this drug may be effective controlling seizures in some dogs with
epilepsy. By adding 10-15 more dogs to this study base, statistical
summaries will provide additional information to firm up this claim. The study is multi-institutional study, with veterinary neurologists from North Carolina State University, the University of Tennessee, and Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine participating.
