- ATP1A3 in disease Symposium since 2012
ENRAH, together with the group of Prof. David Goldstein from Duke University, organised the Symposium ATP1A3 in disease on 10 and 11 December 2012 in Brussels, Belgium. The meeting resulted in a review paper in Lancet Neurology
and set up the annual meetings ATP1A3 disease
Following the successful closure of the FP6 funded project, in 2007 ENRAH submitted and won a grant from the European Commission for further development of the European AHC registry and establishing European Guidelines for AHC treatment and diagnosis of AHC, narcolepsy and rare surgically treatable epilepsies . The project, European Network for Rare Paediatric Neurological Disorders (nEUroped) ran from 2008 till 2011 under the coordination of HCL, France with 13 partners.
- nEUroped project (2008-2011) co-funded by the Public health Program of the European Union
Summary of nEUroped
The first web based Registry of 158 patients with Alternating Hemiplegia in Childhood (AHC) from 8 European countries was achieved by the ENRAH for SMEs.The project has been featured in the DG Research and Innovation's report on rare diseases and under the 2013 Headlines Preparing the way for the understanding of a rare neurological disease.
