Brivaracetam is an orally bioavailable levetiracetam derivative, with anticonvulsant activity. It is indicated as adjunctive therapy in the management of partial-onset seizures (POS) in patients 4 years of age and older with epilepsy who are not satisfactorily controlled with conventional therapy. Brivaracetam injection for intravenous use is an alternative when oral administration is temporarily not feasible and is indicated in adult patients only. The precise mechanism by which brivaracetam exerts its anticonvulsant activity is not known. Brivaracetam displays a high selective affinity for synaptic vesicle protein 2A (SV2A) in the brain. This prevents synaptic vesicle exocytosis and the synaptic release of certain, as of yet not fully known, excitatory neurotransmitters. This may inhibit impulse conduction across synapses, decrease neuronal (hyper-)excitability, and may modulate epileptogenesis. SV2A, a membrane glycoprotein present in neuronal synaptic vesicles, plays a key role in action potential-induced neurotransmitter release in the brain.
