Basic data

Title:
Genetische und pharmakologische Untersuchungen bei Patienten mit Epilepsien und verwandten Erkrankungen
Duration:
01/01/2015 to 23/03/2017
Abstract / short description:
Idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) and Rolandic epilepsy (RE)/centro-temporal spikes (CTS), the two most common idiopathic epilepsy syndromes represent prototypes for common diseases with complex inheritance. Rare mutations (mainly in ion channels) and different microdeletions (in up to 3% of IGE) have been identified as risk factors in both diseases, but the vast majority of the underlying genetic variation remains to be identified.
