Abstract

The therapeutic results obtained with dipropylacetic acid (DPA) and clonazepam were investigated in epileptic children. Both drugs were used in association with other anticonvulsants; observations extended over periods of not less than 6 months and not more than 4 years. DPA was administered in doses between 10 and 30 mg/kg daily to some 300 children; only 100 of them, however, lent themselves to retrospective investigations. These were classified as cases of petit mal (22), grand mal (22), mixed epilepsy (31), West's syndrome (11), and the Lennox Gastaut syndrome (8). Clonazepam was used in 28 patients, all of them resistant to treatment and classified as follows: grand mal plus petit mal (14); West's syndrome (5); Lennox Gastaut syndrome (5); grand mal (2); and petit mal and partial epilepsy (1 each).
