Ganaxolone is designed to provide anti-seizure activity by calming the brain and restoring its electrical balance. Ganaxolone’s method of action is different from existing epilepsy and anti-depressant medications, binding to unique GABAA receptors. In clinical trials to date, ganaxolone has shown to be safe and well-tolerated, and effective in reducing seizures and anxiety in various patient populations. Its functional similarity to reproductive hormones also suggests it may help correct the hormonal imbalance seen in women suffering from postpartum depression.
