These data demonstrate that, similar to patients with epilepsy, rats with SRSs markedly differ in their individual responses to AED treatment. Pharmacoresistant rats selected by prolonged drug treatment from groups of rats with SRSs may provide a unique model to study mechanisms of pharmacoresistance and to identify novel AEDs for treating seizures of patients currently not controlled with existing therapies.
