We just wrapped up an incredible few days with the @AmEpilepsySoc community. #AES2018 was the perfect opportunity to present our recent findings, connect with others also working towards a world without epilepsy, and so much more. The future is bright. Thank you, AES!

Our Phase 2 clinical trial of #ganaxolone shows promise for patients with #CDKL5 & #PCDH19, conditions where existing treatments have shown limited efficacy. Our hope with this research is to advance the understanding and treatment of pediatric epilepsy: https://t.co/3cnMNJHrfp

We stopped by @PCDH19Alliance's booth at #AES2018 and are proud to support their mission.
