Rare syndromes often have genetic causes

Hereditary influences play a significant role in many health disorders and developmental peculiarities.

Genetic diagnostics can help not only to identify genetic neurological diseases, but also to determine the individual risk for certain diseases.

Individuals who carry certain genetic variants may have an increased risk of developing neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, epilepsy, dementia or autism.

Using various technologies, we can identify the genes associated with neurological diseases. This not only enables a better understanding of the underlying causes, but also opens up
opportunities for the development of targeted therapeutic approaches and offers the potential to improve the quality of life of people with neurological diseases.
