Neuroelectrics Starsim device for combatting epilepsy
Neuroelectrics sponsored the FDA-approved investigational
device study at Boston Children's Hospital. All patients had not
responded to at least two anti-epileptic medications, and for many
the next step would be brain surgery to resect the region of the
brain where the seizures originate. The treatment protocol used
20 minutes of daily stimulation applied for 10 days times over two
weeks, followed by an eight-week monitoring period to measure
seizure frequency.
According to Alexander Rotenberg, MD, PhD, associate professor
of neurology at the hospital and at Harvard Medical School, who
was co-principal investigator of the study, "We and our patients
are delighted to have a non-invasive and non-pharmacologic option for those whose seizures have not been controlled by drugs
or by surgery. Our patients and families have seen clear improvements in well-being and quality of life."

Neuroelectrics' Starstim device for epilepsy treatment
Neuroelectrics Corporation, manufacturer of a research-grade
TMS system for treating epilepsy, is making significant strides
in advancing its Starsim product to being authorized for clinical
treatment of patients. At this year's American Epilepsy Society
Annual Meeting in New Orleans, it reported important results from
a clinical trial treating patients with drug resistant epilepsy with
the device which uses mild electric currents applied on the scalp
to calm abnormal activity of the brain.
Of the 17 patients that completed the study, treatment with its
device resulted in a reduction in seizure frequency of at least 40%
from baseline in 75% of the patients, measured eight weeks after
treatment. Also, no device-related adverse events were reported
during the study.
