Epilepsy is one of the oldest diseases known. It was reported in biblical times and a number of famous people are believed to have been its victims including, St. Paul, Peter the Great, Napoleon, and Caesar. No cure of cause has ever been known and treatment was lacking until recent times. Today, effective help for many is possible because of a wide range of new organic drugs. But treatment is symptomatic, a trial and error affair that grants many relief but leaves a large number unhelped. It is for this large number that the search for a new and better anti-convulsant continues.
