Abstract: Effect of the New Anticonvulsant Drug Lacosamide on Persistent Na+- Current and Firing Behavior of Hippocampal Pyramidal Cells

This animal study examined the neurological impact of lacosamide on persistent sodium currents (INa,P) in the brain cells that regulate excitation - hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons. Findings suggest that lacosamide blocks persistent sodium currents in a manner that differs from that of carbamazepine, which acts on the sodium channel in a manner shared by traditional sodium channel agents.

  • Intact hippocampal CA1 neurons of mice were monitored for sodium current activity.
  • Lacosamide was shown to block INa,P in a dose-dependent manner (IC50 = 81 micrometers) and at a concentration range that is close to the mean plasma concentration (9.35 micrograms/milliliter; ~38 micrograms) observed in patients after 12 weeks of treatment with lacosamide 400 mg/day.
  • In addition, lacosamide was not shown to affect the voltage-dependence of activation of INa,P; this preferential action is in contrast to carbamazepine, for which a slight but significant hyperpolarizing shift of the voltage-dependence of activation has been observed.
