Since 2010, the Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of four new anti-epilepsy drugs (AEDs) for the treatment of epilepsy in the USA: clobazam (Onfi), ezogabine (Potiga), perampanel (Fycompa), and eslicarbazepine (Aptiom) as well as two extended release formulations, topiramate ER (Qudexy XR and Trokendi) and oxcarbazepine ER (Oxtellar). This not only provides practitioners ample choice to match medication profiles to their patients' preferences and co-morbidities better, but also challenges us to be proficient in the use of all...

Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) is a form of childhood epileptic encephalopathy that continues to be challenging to treat and manage. The available treatments have failed to provide good control for patients with this devastating epilepsy syndrome. Clobazam is a promising antiepileptic medication, given its effectiveness and relatively low rates of adverse effects. It has been studied and used in several countries for the treatment of refractory seizures, including those that occur with LGS. Clobazam (Onfi™; Lundbeck Inc...

Clobazam was initially developed in the early 1970s as a nonsedative anxiolytic agent, and is currently available as adjunctive therapy for epilepsy and anxiety disorders in more than 100 countries. In October 2011, clobazam (Onfi™; Lundbeck Inc., Deerfield, IL, USA) was approved by the US FDA for use as adjunctive therapy for the treatment of seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome in patients aged 2 years and older. It is a long-acting 1,5-benzodiazepine whose structure distinguishes it from the classic 1,4-benzodiazepines, such as diazepam, lorazepam and clonazepam...

High-throughput screening revealed diaryl pyrazole 3 as a selective albeit modest cholecystokinin 1 receptor (CCK1R) agonist. SAR studies led to the discovery and optimization of a novel class of 1,2-diaryl imidazole carboxamides. Compound 44, which was profiled extensively, showed good in vivo mouse gallbladder emptying (mGBE) and lean mouse overnight food intake (ONFI) reduction activities.
