Antiepileptic activity of a new derivative of benzimidazole RU-1205 was studied on the model of pentylenetetrazole-induced generalized seizures in mice. Sodium valproate was used as the reference substance. RU-1205 was superior to sodium valproate by anticonvulsant activity (by 12 times) and therapeutic index (by 8.5 times). In contrast to sodium valproate, RU-1205 exhibited significant anticonvulsant activity on the model of pentylenetetrazole-induced kindling without tendency to resistance development.
