Pivotal Trial Data Demonstrate NeuroPace RNS(R) System Reduced Seizures in People With Epilepsy
Date:12/7/2009

BOSTON, Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- NeuroPace, Inc. today announced that results from its pivotal trial demonstrated the RNS® System, a novel investigational device that utilizes responsive brain neurostimulation, significantly reduced the frequency of seizures among people who have a common form of epilepsy that is difficult to treat with medication. The pivotal trial data, which were presented at the American Epilepsy Society's (AES) 63rd Annual Meeting today, included 191 people with medically intractable partial onset epilepsy enrolled at 31 sites located in the United States.

"For people who cannot control their seizures effectively with medication, the data show the RNS System may be a safe and effective treatment option," said Martha Morrell, MD, Chief Medical Officer of NeuroPace, Inc. and Clinical Professor of Neurology at Stanford University. "The results also indicate the device became even more effective over time. These findings, drawn from a data set that includes people living with the most difficult type of epilepsy to manage, truly speak to the potential of responsive neurostimulation in controlling seizures."

The trial demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in seizure frequency in the treatment group (responsive stimulation active) as compared to the sham stimulation group (responsive stimulation inactive). During the last two months of the three month blinded evaluation period of the study, people in the treatment group expe
