Genetic-based epilepsy risk scores to promote precision medicine

Researchers led by Cleveland Clinic have developed new genetic-based epilepsy risk scores which could help provide more personalized epilepsy diagnosis and treatment. This research is published in the journal Brain. Researchers combined all known common genetic variants identified from several large genome wide association study cohorts, which included more than 12,000 people with epilepsy and …
