Benzodiazepine Anticonvulsant Drugs Market to Expand with Significant CAGR by 2025

Benzodiazepine anticonvulsant drugs are effective in preventing or controlling seizures or convulsions. Various types of gamma-amino-butyric acid-A (GABA-A) receptor subtypes are enhanced by the action of benzodiazepines. Different subtypes of benzodiazepines have different effects due to difference in their affinity. According to a research study, α-1-GABA-A, one of the GABA-A subtypes, is responsible for moderating sedation, amnesia, and anticonvulsant activity. α-2-GABA-A, another subtype, moderates anxiety. Benzodiazepine anticonvulsant drugs have high affinity for α-1-GABA-A. Examples of benzodiazepine anticonvulsant drugs are midazolam, lorazepam, diazepam, clorazepate, clonazepam, and clobazam.
