Seventy million people have epilepsy with 34–76 per 100,000 developing the condition every year. To formulate rational treatment plans, it is important to understand the different clinical courses and patterns of response to antiepileptic drugs, ideally by following outcomes from the point of treatment initiation. This project will perform analysis focusing on patients presenting with first seizure and their response to the initial therapies and their relationship with long-term treatment outcomes and development of pharmacoresistance in newly treated epilepsy patients. The student will be involved in recruiting and following up eligible patients. This project is suitable for students with background in biomedical science and/or biostatistics.
