PURPOSE: This study used an electronic practice management software in daily routine to gather long-term disease and cost-of-illness (COI) data in patients with epilepsy in Germany. METHODS: Data on socio-economic status, course of epilepsy as well as direct and indirect costs were recorded using practice software-based questionnaires. RESULTS: In 2011 we enrolled 359 patients (170 male (47.4%); mean age 50.5±20.7 years) in six neurological practices...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The economic impact of epilepsy is enormous in terms of use of health care resources and loss of productivity. There is presently scanty data on economic impact of epilepsy in Nigeria,which necessitated this study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: This cross-sectional study is on epilepsy patients age e"16 years who attended Neurology clinic at UITH Ilorin. Data collected included clinical characteristics, utilisation of resources and cost of care. Direct medical costs included recurring costs like consultation, hospitalisation, medication and investigation fees...

PURPOSE: Chronic health conditions are common and increasing among U.S. children and youth. We examined whether chronic health conditions are associated with low school performance. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study of 22,730 children and youth (grades 2-11) in San Jose, California, was conducted from 2007 through 2010. Health conditions were defined as chronic if reported in each of the first 2 years, and school performance was measured using standardized English language arts (ELA) and math assessments...

REVIEW
Kristian Bolin, Lars Forsgren
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders, affecting more than 3 million people in Europe. This paper reviews the published evidence regarding the cost effectiveness of second-generation antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). METHODS: A systematic literature search was performed, using the databases Academic Search Complete, Econlit, EMBASE and MEDLINE. Health economic evaluations of newer (second-generation) AEDs, published as full-length journal articles, were searched for...

A 6-year-old school boy was brought to the child developmental specialist with complaints of school absenteeism and school refusal behaviour of 7 months duration. Before the onset of school refusal, he had two episodes of unresponsiveness with abnormal posturing preceded by vertigo, which were diagnosed and managed as epileptic seizures. Following these episodes, he started avoiding school due of episodic palpitations, 'nervousness' and sweating. However, the episodes of unresponsiveness did not recur. His symptoms were attributed to stress/anxiety by both the examining physicians as well as the parents because repeated clinical evaluation including 12-lead ECG done three times and echocardiography were normal...

The extraordinary burden of epilepsy on quality of life (QOL) is well known, as is the very high economic burden associated with the disease. Epilepsy is associated not only with seizures, but also a variety of serious comorbidities, including respiratory, cardiovascular, and neurologic dysfunctions. Psychiatric conditions are very prevalent in the epilepsy population, and may have pathological mechanisms in common with epilepsy. Compared with healthy controls, patients with untreated epilepsy have scored significantly worse across a spectrum of neurocognitive tests...

COMMENT
Amy Metcalfe, Nathalie Jetté
Evaluation of: Ivanova JI, Birnbaum HG, Kidolezi Y et al. Economic burden of epilepsy among the privately insured in the US. Pharmacoeconomics 28(8), 675-685 (2010). Epilepsy is a chronic condition characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures. Epilepsy is typically treated with antiepileptic drugs, although surgery is superior to medical therapy for those who are resistant to medications, and is more more cost effective when successful. The discussion article examines the direct medical costs of epilepsy and the rate of medically related absenteeism compared with a matched control group in the USA...

PURPOSE: Compare annual direct and indirect costs between privately insured U.S. patients with epileptic partial onset seizures (POS) and matched controls. METHODS: One thousand eight hundred fifty-nine patients (including a subset of 758 employees) with >or=1 (POS) diagnosis (ICD-9-CM: 345.4.x-345.7.x), 1999-2004, ages 16-64 years, were identified from a privately insured claims database. Control group was an age- and gender-matched cohort of randomly chosen beneficiaries without epilepsy (ICD-9-CM: 345...

PURPOSE: To assess the outcome of patients with epilepsy treated at primary care health units under the framework of the demonstration project on epilepsy in Brazil, part of the WHO/ILAE/IBE Global Campaign Against Epilepsy. METHOD: We assessed the outcome of patients treated at four primary health units. The staff of the health units underwent information training in epilepsy. The outcome assessment was based on: 1) reduction of seizure frequency, 2) subjective perception from the patients and the physicians point of view, 3) reduction of absenteeism, 4) social integration (school and work), and 5) sense of independence...

INTRODUCTION: The factors that affect adherence to pharmacological treatment with anticonvulsive drugs are manifold and can be classified as psychosocial, educational and related to the medication and the relation between physician and patient. Non-compliance with pharmacological treatment leads to: lack of control over seizures, recurrence, increased absenteeism from work and, possibly, injury to oneself or to others. AIMS: To determine and to analyse the variables associated to compliance with pharmacological treatment in a sector of the population in Peru...

Studies on accidents at work in people with epilepsy are scarce and the evidence that epilepsy carries an increased risk of accidents at work is mostly anecdotal. The present survey is a multicentre prospective cohort study of everyday life risks recently conducted in eight European countries (Estonia, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Slovenia and United Kingdom) comparing referral children and adults with epilepsy to age- and sex-matched non-epileptic controls. In this context, every accident occurring during work over a 1-3 year follow-up was prospectively reported by patients and controls...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Published studies during the past year about three topics important to the pediatric clinician-- immunizations, neonatal jaundice, and animal-induced injuries-are concisely reviewed. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent updates regarding vaccines including the questionable link with autism, implementation of universal influenza vaccination for young children, the efficacy of pneumococcal vaccine against invasive disease, and new information on pertussis, varicella, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, measles, and rotavirus vaccination are discussed...

DESIGN: The following conditions, identified through a structured in-person interview with a parent or other adult household member, were examined: deafness or trouble hearing, blindness, epilepsy or seizures, stammering and stuttering, other speech defects, cerebral palsy, delay in growth or development, learning disabilities, and emotional or behavioral problems...

An overview is given initially of study findings pertaining to unemployment, work history and workplace experiences of people with epilepsy (disclosure, job reallocation, sick leaves, up-/downgrading, accidents). The author then describes new approaches to improving the vocational integration of persons with epilepsy, by focussing on the one hand on extending the range of occupational assessment, and the adoption of new job placement assessment, and the adoption of new job placement strategies on the other, which concurrently seek to influence those factors that are detrimental to the occupational outlook of the person with a seizure disorder (notably frequent seizures, psychiatric problems, low educational levels, negative employer attitudes)...
