Looking Ahead to AES 2009: New Insights on Comorbidities and Other Considerations for Epilepsy Treatment
Date:12/4/2009

RARITAN, N.J., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Depression, anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), sleep disorder and migraine: These are among the comorbidities reported to occur more often in people who said they had been diagnosed with epilepsy versus those without an epilepsy diagnosis, according to a survey of approximately 173,000 households across the U.S.

Findings from "CNS-Related Comorbidities in Individuals with Self-Reported Epilepsy - Data from the National Survey of Epilepsy, Comorbidities and Health Outcomes" will be detailed in a platform presentation on Dec. 7 at the 2009 American Epilepsy Society (AES) Annual Meeting in Boston. The analysis explores the importance of identifying these Central Nervous System (CNS)-related comorbid conditions, and their potential impact on the clinical management of epilepsy.

The survey results are one of eight presentations supported by Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OMJPI) at the AES Meeting.

Saturday, Dec. 5: 1-8 p.m. (author presentations 2-3 p.m.)
