A tiny group of Victorian children will try synthetic cannabis as part of an international clinical trial to understand the effects of synthetic cannabis on severe epilepsy in kids.
The trial in Melbourne at Austin Health will begin in February with 10 children who have severe forms of epilepsy, and whose condition has not improved despite trying three different anti-epilepsy drugs.
Austin health director Ingrid Scheffer says the study, which will expand to include 60 children by the end of the year, is a first in Australia and is part of an international effort to understand the effects of synthetic cannabis on epilepsy in kids.
The drug developed by US pharmaceutical company Insys Therapeutics Inc to help children with refractory epilepsy is made from a synthetic version of a therapeutic compound found in the cannabis plant, called a cannabidiol.
Premier Daniel Andrews told reporters on Wednesday the government was dedicating $150,000 to the trial.
