Gene link found for mysterious deaths

Australian Scientists 've identified faulty genes, which offer some explanation for otherwise poorly understood cases of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). About 150 Australians with epilepsy die mysteriously every year in a scenario recorded by doctors as SUDEP.

Professor Chris Semarian,  from the University of Sydney & the Centenary Institute, said some people with a history of epilepsy die suddenly with no apparent cause of death. The study is the largest of its kind to be conducted & has uncovered a common fault in a family of genes  known to play a key role in the function of the brain  but also the rhythm of the heart. Professor Semarian said the discovery might eventually help to find a way to treat or heal the problem.
