Infantile Spasms Research

What is the Infantile Spasms Registry & Genetic Studies?

This is a research project by a group of doctors who wish to collect as much information as possible about the causes, treatments, and outcomes of infantile spasms. Our goal is to improve the care for children with infantile spasms. By studying large numbers of children with this disorder we hope to make much-needed progress in treatment.

We ask you to join us, to help understand more about children with infantile spasms, discover the genetic causes of the condition, and develop better treatment.
