Keppra XR(TM) Offers Convenient Dosing For People With Partial Onset Seizures
Date:11/5/2008

-- Online survey shows people living with epilepsy often miss a dose of their antiepileptic drug

-- UCB continues to build on the company's commitment to patients living with epilepsy through the launch of Keppra XR(TM) (levetiracetam) extended-release tablets

-- Keppra XR(TM) is one of many upcoming milestones in the UCB Epilepsy Franchise

ATLANTA, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- press release, regulated information: UCB announced today that Keppra XR(TM) offers convenient dosing for people with epilepsy. Keppra XR(TM) was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September 2008 for use as an add-on to other antiepileptic treatments for people with partial-onset seizures who are 16 years of age and older.

While many people with epilepsy are successfully treated with one or more of the currently available antiepileptic drugs, a significant percentage still live with uncontrolled seizures or intolerable side effects.

A recent online survey of 451 people living with epilepsy showed that almost half missed at least one dose of their epilepsy medication in the last month, and 37 percent who missed a dose reported having a breakthrough seizure. More than 80 percent of these people missed a dose of an antiepileptic drug (AED) that was taken multiple times daily and the most common reason reported for having missed a dose was forgetfulness. The survey was conducted by UCB.

Keppra XR(TM) offers once-daily dosing and is made specifically for epilepsy. Keppra XR(TM) is the only extended-release formulation of levetiracetam, and there is no generic version available.

"At UCB, we are committed to developing innovative treatments for epilepsy and improving the lives of people and their families living with this condit
