Program

 Introduction

Genetic testing has become a more and more essential part of the clinical practice in epilepsy. In this conference, we intend to discuss the current role of genetics in areas of clinical practice where a debate is still ongoing, and in which further knowledge is necessary. We will discuss the yields of genetic testing in adult epilepsy patients, and how this diagnostic tool can lead to better management, and be relevant in the transition from pediatric to adult care. The methodology necessary to perform clinical studies in rare conditions, and how these studies in limited cohorts of subjects can be crucial for the development of targeted drugs will be illustrated. Moreover, the role in this endeavor of patients’ associations, international epilepsy networks and registries will be debated. Finally, the evidences suggesting that genetics can have an impact in selecting epilepsy surgery candidates and can inform on post-surgical prognosis will be presented.
