Study identifies druggable brain gene network implicated in
A new study has identified a network of genes in the brain that, when disrupted, causes epilepsy; the results also predicted that a known anti-epileptic drug works to restore the network's function. This discovery has not only offered a new target for developing anti-epileptic drugs, but the original 'network biology' approach developed by the team may provide a quicker and cheaper way to accelerate the discovery of novel drug candidates that are effective treatments for disease...
