New research shows cancer genes may be related to epilepsy genetics

The discovery of genetic similarities between epilepsy and other conditions, such as schizophrenia, could lead to new treatments for patients with the condition.The research, led by researchers at the University of Melbourne, is published online in the journal PLOS Genetics.It is based on more than 10,000 genomes sequenced and analyzed by scientists from the University’s […]

How to Read Genetically-engineered Epilepsy Genetic Testing Kits

What you need to know about the new Epidiolex drug and the genetic testing kit.The company’s Epidiosceptors were designed to help with seizures in the same way that EpiPens were designed for stroke patients.The kits, which cost $10,000 each, can test for all the major variants of epilepsy, including those associated with genetic disorders like […]

The genetics of epilepsy and epilepsy-like symptoms

Genetic modification of the genes encoding certain proteins that cause epileptic seizures has been described by scientists as an effective tool for treating epileptic children and improving their lives.The work has the potential to transform the way epilepsy is treated in many ways, and to lead to new treatments that would benefit both children and […]

How is epilepsy genetic? Genetic mosaicism of epilepsy and related disorders

Genetic variations of epilepsy are common and can be seen in the eyes of those with the disease, but are also common in the genomes of those who are unaffected by it.The genetic variations of the condition can also cause eye problems, such as retinal detachment or corneal cancer.The conditions also often involve multiple inherited […]
