It was a pleasure to talk to Pat Penovich (Minnesota Epilepsy Group, St. Paul, MN, USA) about the exit survey, of a Phase 3 study, assessing patient experience of using the diazepam nasal spray for seizure clusters. The abstract ‘Examining the Patient Experience With Diazepam Nasal Spray for Seizure Clusters: Patient-reported Results From an Exit Survey of a Phase 3, Open-label, Repeat Dose Safety Study.’ was presented at the virtual AES 2020, 4-8 December 2020.
