More than one-third of people with epilepsy experience seizures

More than one-third of people with epilepsy experience seizures despite taking currently available treatments, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The chronic condition causes seizures brought on by abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Seizures can affect movement, the senses, emotions, and behavior.

Partial seizures are the most common type of seizure. About 60% of epilepsy patients have partial seizures, which involve only one part of the brain. They can, however, spread throughout the brain, becoming what’s referred to as generalized seizures.
