Scientific Background

  • Dravet syndrome (SCN1A, AD)
  • Early infantile eileptic encephalopathy (KCNQ2, AD)
  • Early-onset vitamin B6-dependent epilepsy (PLPBP, AR)
  • Glucose transporter type 1 deficiency syndrome (SLC2A1, AD)
  • Familial infantile convulsions and paroxysmal choreoathetosis (PRRT2, AD)
