    … patients on select immunosuppressing medications had a lower risk of developing epilepsy.

    "These findings suggest a new approach to treating seizures, one based on quieting the immune system," Mandl said.

    I know I have gained secondary traited siezures from bartonella infection, though temporal lobe kind not convulsive.. I never knew before having it that it can induce fits of extreme agitation, hallucinations, intense memories, arousal, and the most weird to desribe feelings in the world... Lol

    I guess it puts the possibility of underlying infection triggers, as well as auto immune and the rest. I wonder how much of those auto immune cases could be underlying infection too??
