Awareness Week."

"Due to the rare nature of infantile spasms, physicians have not had ready access to unbiased educational materials for parents and caregivers of infants with IS," said Lawrence Brown, M.D., Associate Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. "This is an important step that we are taking this week to shed light on a condition that needs to be better understood by the child neurology community, pediatricians and caregivers."

Funding for Infantile Spasms Awareness Week and the educational materials created by CNF was provided by Questcor Pharmaceuticals via an unrestricted educational grant. Questcor did not have any involvement regarding the content of the information in the brochure, DVD or the website.

About Infantile Spasms

Infantile spasms (a.k.a. West Syndrome) is a severe, ultra-rare form of epilepsy that typically begins in infancy. It is estimated that there are fewer than 2,000 new cases of IS in the United States each year, giving IS orphan disease designation. Infantile spasms typically occur in the first year of life, often beginning between three to six months of age. Infantile spasms is characterized by head drops with associated outstretched arms. (These spasms have also been described as nodding, salaam seizures, and jackknife seizures.) Often, in the beginning, the attacks are brief, infrequent and not typical, so it is quite common for the diagnosis to be delayed. Frequently, due to the pattern of the attacks and the cry that a child gives during or after an attack, the attacks are initially thought to be due to colic or gastric distress.
