Association of Levels of Specialized Care With Risk of Premature Mortality in Patients With Epilepsy
Exposure to specialist care is associated with incremental reductions in the hazard of premature mortality. Those referred to a comprehensive epilepsy program received the greatest benefit.

In this Review, we focus on our understanding of the IL-1 receptor–Toll-like receptor 4 axis, the arachidonic acid–prostaglandin cascade, oxidative stress and transforming growth factor-β signalling associated with blood–brain barrier dysfunction, all of which are pathways that are activated in pharmacoresistant epilepsy in humans and that can be modulated in animal models to produce therapeutic effects on seizures, neuronal cell loss and neurological comorbidities.

Ultra-Rare Genetic Variation in the Epilepsies: A Whole-Exome Sequencing Study of 17,606 Individuals
Our study, the largest epilepsy WES study to date, confirms a convergence in the genetics of severe and less-severe epilepsies associated with ultra-rare coding variation, and it highlights a ubiquitous role for GABAergic inhibition in epilepsy etiology.
