Researchers working on blood test for epilepsy

22 Feb 2018

Researchers in Ireland are looking to develop a blood test for epilepsy.

David Henshall is a professor of molecular physiology and neuroscience at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI). He and his team have been studying molecules in the blood that might identify if a person has epilepsy.

Prof Henshall leads the EpimiRNA consortium, which aims to gather data and improve treatment for epilepsy.
