- A compound found in marijuana is showing great promise in the treatment of epilepsy in both kids and adults.
- After two years of research, "finally we are getting the data to show patients that the treatment works," explains UAB neurologist Dr. Jerzy Szaflarski.
- They've observed a reduction in seizures in the majority of patients in clinical trials, and some are even seizure-free.
