ABOUT CLINICAL RESEARCH
Clinical studies (also known as 'clinical trials') help researchers test new medications and improve or test new uses for those that are already available. They do this by asking participants to follow strict dosing plans and then comparing the results between groups of people that take the study medications versus those that do not. In this way, researchers can answer questions about whether the medication works and which side effects may be expected.
ABOUT THE FAiRE PROGRAM
FAiRE (Fenfluramine Assessment in Rare Epilepsy) is a program of clinical studies that are evaluating whether an investigational drug called ZX008 can improve seizure control in children and young adults with rare epilepsies, such as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.
