    Clinical Applications

    Mode of Administration

    Brivaracetam is administered by oral or intravenous routes.

    Pharmacological Effects

    Brivaracetam functions by binding to synaptic vesicle glycoprotein 2A (SV2A) in the brain with high affinity. SV2A is known to play a role in epileptogenesis through modulation of synaptic GABA release. It is thought that Brivaracetam exerts its anti-epileptogenic effects through its binding to SV2A. Brivaracetam is also known to inhibit Na+ channels which may also contribute to its anti-epileptogenic action.
