X-TOLE: XEN1101 as Adjunctive Therapy in Focal-onset Epilepsy, with an Open-Label Extension
The X-TOLE Study is a phase 2 double-blind study that is underway for patients with focal epilepsy currently taking between 1 and 3 anti-epileptic drugs that are still experiencing frequent seizures.
Three doses of the investigational drug are being evaluated and some patients will be assigned to a placebo. The study includes a 2-month baseline and a 2-month randomized, double-blind treatment period followed by an optional open-label extension phase for up to 1 year.
All participants will receive active study on the extension study.
To participate in the trial, you must meet certain criteria. The following details only some of these requirements.
- 18 to 75 years old
- Able to keep accurate seizure diaries
- Have a diagnosis of focal/partial epilepsy for at least 2 years
- On a stable dose of 1 to 3 anti-epileptic drugs
- BMI <37 kg/m2
- Have a history of primary generalized seizures
- Repetitive seizures within the past year where the individual seizure cannot be counted
- Status epilepticus within the past year
How the drug works
XEN1101 is a Kv7 potassium channel modular being developed for the treatment of focal epilepsy. It’s mechanism has been clinically validated as an effective adjunctive therapy for treatment-resistant focal seizures as demonstrated with ezogabine, an earlier generation Kv7 opener.
