Epilepsy

What Is Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder marked by sudden recurrent episodes of sensory disturbance, loss of consciousness, or convulsions, associated with abnormal electrical activity in the brain.

Research

A review on the available evidence concerning MTHFR C677T and susceptibility to epilepsy was studied by Wu et al (2014). Ten studies were examined, with an association between the C677T mutation and epilepsy susceptibility was found. When examining the evidence in relation to ethnicity, the results also indicated the MTHFR C677T mutation increased the risk of epilepsy in Asian populations.
