Background: Over past two decades, vagus
nerve stimulation (VNS) has been widely used and reported to alleviate seizure frequency worldwide, however, so far, only hundreds of patients with pharmaco-resistant epilepsy (PRE) have been treated with VNS in mainland China.
The tickle treatment is called transcutaneous vagus
nerve stimulation (tVNS).
nerve stimulation(VNS) may prevent or lessen seizures by sending regular, mild pulses of electrical energy to the brain via the vagus
The Cleveland Clinic notes that gastroparesis is caused by nerve injury, specifically the vagus
After reviewing Epidiolex scripts in Q2, the analyst found that uptake of the drug is still growing, though he adds the "curve is clearly flattening this quarter."
