SUDDEN DEATH IN EPILEPSY

SUDDEN DEATH IN EPILEPSY

Epilepsy can be caused by genetic mutations in ion channels, some of which are also present in the heart. Sudden death in epilepsy or SUDEP, SUDEP describes the sudden death of an individual who suffered from epilepsy. In collaboration with the Catholic University of Rome we study the genetic factors that may predispose to this type of sudden death.
