Research

The Personalized Medicine in the Treatment of Epilepsy
Identification of Genes Predisposing to the disease and to resistance to anti-epileptic treatments study is looking to identify genetic mutations responsible for various forms of epilepsy, as well as to understand the impact of genetic analysis and whole genome sequencing which will be used to study the participant's genes or their genome. This can lead to a better understanding of the disease and enable earlier diagnosis, as well as develop understanding of the genetic factors involved in anti-epileptic medication response at a personalized level.
