Ohtahara Syndrome Information Page


What research is being done?

Researchers are learning more about the fundamental processes that lead to the development of epilepsy. Genes associated with Ohtahara syndrome involve multiple pathways including gene regulation, mitochondrial function, and synaptic transmission (communication between nerve cells). Basic science studies contnue to investigate how alteration of these pathways in brain cells change nerve firing and contribute to seizures and abnormal development. The discovery of gene variants that cause early-life epilepsies raise the possibility of precision medicine and individualized treatment approaches.
