What is the number of AEDs that the patient has to fail before the chance of subsequent success is sufficiently low to designate the seizure disorder as pharmacoresistant?

In the Glasgow series, 50% of the patients entered a remission period of 12 months or more with their first ever AED, whereas those who received a second and third monotherapy only entered remission in 32% and 27% of the cases, respectively.
