 Eisai product names 
Generic name: perampanel. In-house developed novel antiepileptic agent. Believed to exert its antiepileptic effect by selectively antagonizing AMPA receptors, which are a type of neuroreceptor that binds with neurotransmitter glutamic acid, thus preventing excess influx of calcium into cells and suppressing the aggravation of excited nerve cells.
