A promising new study could provide an early warning system to enable people with epilepsy to know when they are at risk of having a seizure.
Diagnosis of epilepsy is complex and challenging. Research led by FutureNeuro (Dublin, Ireland), hosted at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI), has identified a unique molecular pattern within the blood before seizures happen. The results of the study have been published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
