Encephalopathies with Epilepsy and Movement Disorders: the GPCRs-cAMP signaling pathway

Registration closed

Description

Pediatric movement disorders are a constantly changing field of pediatric neurology that requires us to stay current. Movement disorders affect a lot of children, and most of them have a rare disease. Because these disorders aren't well-known, it takes longer for doctors to figure out what's wrong with them.

Several genes of the GPCRs-cAMP signaling pathway (GNAO1, GNB1, ADCY5, PDE2A, PDE10A, etc.) have been described in recent years as causative of pediatric movement disorders. In this webinar, the presenter will talk about the natural history of this condition, describe its genetic features, and talk about some possible biomarkers or prognostic markers that could be used for early diagnosis and monitoring, as well as different therapeutic approaches.
