CFRI researchers and their collaborators have discovered a new genetic mutation in a six-year-old-girl. Their finding solved a medical mystery for the young girl and her family. She was being treated at BC Children’s Hospital for developmental delays and other serious health problems that doctors were unable to explain. The medical team’s recently published findings may provide answers and eventually lead to improved therapies for other children who have similar symptoms and don’t respond to current treatments.
