Overexpression of μ-calpain in the anterior temporal neocortex of patients with intractable epilepsy correlates with clinicopathological characteristics. Feng ZH, Hao J, Ye L, Dayao C, Yan N, Yan Y, Chu L, Shi FD Seizure Jun;20(5) For those with epilepsies characterized by partial and generalized tonic–clonic seizures, 8% of children became intractable during an average of 8 years of follow-up.

After 20 years of follow-up, 51% of 75 patients with childhood-onset symptomatic generalized epilepsy had intractable seizures. On the opposite side of the spectrum, the group of benign epilepsy syndromes presented in this book is clearly more prevalent in childhood than the intractable epilepsies.

Neurologists and paediatricians should be familiar with these conditions because accurate diagnosis, and its consequent good prognosis, may save much suffering to the family.

Seizures and syndromes are explored in their scientific context. Radiotherapeutic treatment of intractable epilepsies with or without space-occupying lesions can lead to a reduction in seizure frequency and/or severity.

Experimental models of epilepsies treated with radiation therapy have demonstrated a dose-dependent positive effect of radiation on the frequency and severity of the seizures and on the.

KCNT1 encodes a weakly voltage-dependent sodium-gated potassium channel subunit also known as SLACK (sequence like a calcium activated K + channel). It is widely expressed in the nervous system and represents the largest known potassium channel. Epilepsy is a group of neurological disorders characterized by recurrent epileptic seizures.

Epileptic seizures are episodes that can vary from brief and nearly undetectable periods to long periods of vigorous shaking. These episodes can result in physical injuries, including occasionally broken bones. In epilepsy, seizures have a tendency to recur and, as a rule, have no Specialty: Neurology.

Idiopathic generalized epilepsies (IGEs) constitute one third of all epilepsies. They are genetically determined and affect otherwise normal people of both sexes and all races. IGEs manifest with typical absences, myoclonic jerks, and generalized tonic-clonic seizures, alone or in varying combinations and severity.
