What research is being done?

The NINDS Epilepsy Centers without Walls program encourages collaboratiosn and shairng of data and resources between researchers that may lead to advances in prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of the epilepsies, including Dravet syndrome. Study of the genetic defects responsible for Dravet syndrome and related disorders is occurring in several models of Dravet syndrome, including fish and rodent models. These are expected to lead to the development of effective therapies to address seizures as well as their underlying genetic cause. A common approach in gene therapy research uses viruses modified to be harmless to introduce new genes into brain cells, which then act as"factories" to produce potentially therapeutic proteins.
