Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Treatment: Drugs - Padsevonil
Other interventions - Placebo

Experimental: Padsevonil dosing regimen 1 - Subjects will be randomized to receive a combination of tablets of Padsevonil and Placebo (as appropriate) to maintain the blinding.

Experimental: Padsevonil dosing regimen 2 - Subjects will be randomized to receive a combination of tablets of Padsevonil and Placebo (as appropriate) to maintain the blinding.

Experimental: Padsevonil dosing regimen 3 - Subjects will be randomized to receive a combination of tablets of Padsevonil and Placebo (as appropriate) to maintain the blinding.

Experimental: Padsevonil dosing regimen 4 - Subjects will be randomized to receive a combination of tablets of Padsevonil and Placebo (as appropriate) to maintain the blinding.

Placebo Comparator: Placebo - Subjects randomized to the placebo group will receive a combination of several Placebo tablets to maintain the blinding.


Treatment: Drugs: Padsevonil
Padsevonil in different dosages.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 0 0
Change in log-transformed observable focal onset seizure frequency from Baseline over the 12 week Maintenance Period - During the study, subjects will keep diaries to record daily seizure activity. Seizure frequency refers to 28-day adjusted frequency. Seizure frequency will be based on investigator assessment of subjects' reports of daily seizure type and frequency. Observable focal-onset seizures refer to Type IA1, IB, and IC (ILAE Classification of Epileptic Seizures, 1981).
Timepoint [1] 0 0
From Baseline over the 12 week Maintenance Period
Primary outcome [2] 0 0
Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) reported by the subject and/or caregiver or observed by the investigator during the entire study - An Adverse Event is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product that does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment.
Timepoint [2] 0 0
From Baseline until Safety Follow-Up (up to Week 23)
Primary outcome [3] 0 0
Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) leading to study withdrawal - An Adverse Event is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product that does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment.
Timepoint [3] 0 0
From Baseline until Safety Follow-Up (up to Week 23)
Primary outcome [4] 0 0
Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) during the entire study - A Serious Adverse Event (SAE) is any untoward medical occurrence that at any dose:
Results in death
Is life-threatening
Requires in patient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization
Is a congenital anomaly or birth defect
Is as infection that requires treatment parenteral antibiotics
Other important medical events which based on medical or scientific judgement may jeopardize the patients, or may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent any of the above.
Timepoint [4] 0 0
From Baseline until Safety Follow-Up (up to Week 23)
Secondary outcome [1] 0 0
75 % responder rate over the 12 week Maintenance Period - The 75% responder rate, where a responder is a subject experiencing a =75% reduction in observable focal-onset seizure frequency from Baseline, over the 12-Week Maintenance Period.
Timepoint [1] 0 0
End of Maintenance Period (Week 16) following 3 weeks of titration and 1 week stabilization
Secondary outcome [2] 0 0
50 % responder rate over the 12 week Maintenance Period - The 50% responder rate, where a responder is a subject experiencing a =50% reduction in observable focal-onset seizure frequency from Baseline, over the 12-Week Maintenance.
Timepoint [2] 0 0
End of Maintenance Period (Week 16) following 3 weeks of titration and 1 week stabilization
Secondary outcome [3] 0 0
Percent change in observable focal-onset seizure frequency from Baseline over the 12 week Maintenance Period - During the study, subjects will keep diaries to record daily seizure activity. The percentage of participants who experienced a 50 % or greater reduction in seizure frequency per 28 days relative to Baseline (responders) will be assessed.

End of Maintenance Period (Week 16) following 3 weeks of titration and 1 week stabilization

Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
- Diagnosis of focal epilepsy per 1989 International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE)
criteria at least 3 years before study entry

- Subject has failed to achieve seizure control with 4 tolerated and appropriately
chosen prior antiepileptic drugs (AED), including past and ongoing treatment, that
were individually optimized for adequate dose and duration. Prior discontinued AED
treatment would need to be assessed by the Investigator considering the patient
medical records and patient and/or caregiver interview. 'Prior AED' is defined as all
past and ongoing AED treatments with a start date before the Screening Visit (Visit 1)

- Average of >= 4 spontaneous and observable focal seizures (type IA1 (i.e. focal
aware), IB (i.e. focal impaired awareness), IC (i.e. focal to bilateral tonic-clonic))
per month

- Current treatment with an individually optimized and stable dose of at least 1 and up
to 3 AEDs for the 8 weeks prior to the Screening Visit with or without additional
Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) or other neurostimulation treatments
Minimum age
18 Years
Maximum age
No limit
Gender
Both males and females
Can healthy volunteers participate?
No
Key exclusion criteria
- Subject has a history of or signs of generalized or combined generalized and focal
epilepsy

- Cluster seizures which are uncountable in the previous 8 weeks before study entry and
during 4 weeks prospective baseline

- Current treatment with carbamazepine, phenytoin, primidone, phenobarbital

- Current treatment/ use of (non-AED) prescription, nonprescription, dietary (eg,
grapefruit or passion fruit), or herbal products that are potent inducers or
inhibitors of the CYP3A4 or 2C19 pathway for 2 weeks (or 5 half-lives, whichever is
longer) prior to the Baseline Visit

- Subjects taking sensitive substrates of CYP2C19 for 2 weeks (or 5 half-lives,
whichever is longer) prior to the Baseline Visit

- Subject has been taking vigabatrin less than 2 years at study entry

- Subject has been taking felbamate for less than 12 months

- Subject taking retigabine for less than 4 years

- Current treatment with benzodiazepines (i.e. GABA-A-ergic drugs like zolpidem,
zaleplon, or zopiclone, excluding GABA-A-ergic AEDs) <3 times per week for emergencies

- Subject has a current medical condition that occurred within the last 12 months which,
in the opinion of the investigator, could compromise his/her safety or ability to
participate in this study
