Mass General Hospital Testing New Epilepsy Therapy Device - Clinical Trial Examines New Responsive Brain Stimulation Technology

In an effort to find a better therapy and improve the lives of people with epilepsy, the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Epilepsy Service is participating in the RNS™ System Pivotal Clinical Investigation, a study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a responsive brain stimulation device in reducing the frequency of uncontrolled seizures. MGH is one of only 28 centers across the country participating in this study.

"Of the more than 3 million people in the United States with epilepsy, approximately 30 to 40 percent have seizures that cannot be fully controlled with medications, leaving many unable to work or drive," said Andrew Cole, MD, director of the MGH Epilepsy Service. "We hope that for some patients the RNS device will allow them to live fuller, richer lives, free from fear of unexpected seizures."
