Epilepsy in Young Children Should Be Treated as Urgently as Cancer

In a Severe Childhood Neurodegeneration, Novel Mechanism Found

HelbigIngoRGB-17.jpg

Neurology researchers investigating a rare but devastating neurological regression in infants have discovered the cause: gene mutations that severely disrupt crucial functions in mitochondria, the energy-producing structures within cells. The specific disease mechanism has not previously been implicated in a human disease.

"Missing Mutation" Found in Severe Infant Epilepsy

GoldbergEhtanRGB-13.jpg

Researchers have discovered a “missing mutation” in severe infant epilepsy—long-suspected genetic changes that might trigger overactive, brain-damaging electrical signaling leading to seizures. They also found early indications that specific anti-seizure medications might prevent disabling brain injury.

New Direction for Precision Medicine in Epilepsy

AnneBerg.jpg

In a new approach to precision medicine research, scientists used bioinformatics tools to identify common features of genes associated with infantile spasms compared to other forms of early life epilepsy. Their analysis, published in PLOS ONE, reveals that infantile spasms are not only unique clinically, but also biologically. Focus on specific biological mechanisms underlying the genes that cause infantile spasms could help find new targets for treatment.

Smartphone-Assisted Neuroendoscopy

Fig.2.jpg

A variety of neurosurgical procedures are performed with the aid of smartphone-endoscope integration. The smartphone takes the place of a camera and video monitor. It is easy to use, more cost effective, and provides the surgeon with a more intuitive and fluid method of performing neuroendoscopy.
