International Epilepsy Day

Dup15q Alliance joins the worldwide epilepsy community in raising awareness for International Epilepsy Day.
Dup15q syndrome is characterized by having an extra copy of a portion of chromosome 15 in the 11.2 – 13.1 region in combination with a number of symptoms that may include hypotonia and motor delays, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and epilepsy including infantile spasms
Over half of all people with dup15q syndrome will have at least one seizure in their lifetime. The majority of those will experience their first seizure before age 5, but seizure onset occurs up through puberty and young adulthood in our population.
