Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Canada Inc. Announces Health Canada Approval of APTIOM(TM) (eslicarbazepine acetate) as a Once-Daily Adjunctive Treatment for Partial-Onset Seizures in Patients with Epilepsy
Date:7/11/2014

psy." said Douglas Reynolds, President, Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Canada Inc.."Adequate seizure control remains an unmet medical need for a significant number of patients and Sunovion is committed to providing a treatment option to address this need."

About Partial-Onset Seizures
Epilepsy is a chronic neurological condition characterized by recurrent seizures resulting from abnormal firing of impulses from nerve cells in the brain2. In partial-onset seizures, these bursts of electrical activity are initially focused in specific areas of the brain, but may become more widespread, with symptoms varying according to the affected areas3,4.

About APTIOMTM
APTIOMTM, a voltage-gated sodium channel inhibitor, is a prescription medicine approved for use as adjunctive treatment of partial-onset seizures. Treatment with APTIOMTM should be initiated at 400 mg once daily. After one week, dosage may be increased to the recommended maintenance dosage of 800 mg once daily. Some patients may benefit from the maximum recommended maintenance dosage of 1,200 mg once daily, although this dosage is associated with an increase in adverse reactions. The maximum dose of 1,200 mg daily should only be initiated after the patient has tolerated 800 mg daily for at least a week. For some patients, treatment may be initiated at 800 mg once daily if the need for additional seizure reduction outweighs an increased risk of adverse reactions during initiation.  The initial research and development of eslicarbazepine acetate was performed by BIAL, a privately held Portuguese research-based pharmaceutical company. Subsequently, Sunovion acquired the rights under an exclusive license to further develop and commercialize eslicarbazepine acetate in the U.S. and Canadian markets from BIAL. Eslicarbazepine acetate was approved on November 8, 2013, by the U.S. FDA as adjunctive treatment of partial-
