Epidemiology is the branch of medicine that deals with the incidence, prevalence, distribution and possible control of diseases and other factors relating to health.

While multiple sclerosis is not contagious or directly inherited, epidemiologists — scientists who study patterns of disease — have identified factors in the distribution of MS around the world that may eventually help.

Epidemiology & Genetics of Multiple Sclerosis Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease affecting the myelinated axons of the central nervous system; for those with MS, myelin sheaths are destroyed by one’s immune system, leading to a deficiency in the.

Abstract. Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a multiorgan disorder that primarily affects the brain, skin, and kidneys. Recent advances have elucidated the genetics of this complex, which has helped lead to an increased understanding of the basic neurobiology of this by: 9.

Malaria persists despite efforts for global eradication and vaccine development, and continues to prove lethal in endemic regions.

The neurological manifestations of malaria are often devastating, with a high mortality rate and significant morbidity in survivors. A major life threatening complication of malaria infection is cerebral malaria (CM), most commonly occurring in children in sub. The research in this area is lacking.

The underlying genetic cause is mutations in the TSC1. Epidemiology is essentially the study of disease in people. Epidemiological studies have helped to identify factors that may be related to the risk of developing MS, such as latitude, migration patterns, genetics and infectious processes.

Jan 05,  · Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a rare autosomal dominant genetic disorder. Many gaps remain in the understanding of TSC because of the complexity in clinical presentation.

Here, we Cited by: Multiple sclerosis is an inflammatory demyelinating disease that most often appears in young adulthood, with the incidence peaking around age 30 (Wingerchuk, ).Findings published in the journal Neurology (Wallin, et al) on February 15, estimate the prevalence to be cases peroradults with MS.

In addition, the study supports previous evidence of a female. Tuberous sclerosis is a complex genetic disorder first recognised as a specific disease early in the 19th century. Even though Rayer was the first to describe the condition, it.

Jan 16,  · Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a multisystem connective tissue disease characterised phenotypically by fibrosis and ischaemic atrophy. Its aetiology is most likely multifactorial. A genetic predisposition to the condition is suggested by reports of familial SSc (a positive family history is the strongest risk factor yet identified), by animal models, and by disease-association studies, in which Cited by:.

Mar 01,  · Systemic sclerosis: Genetics and epigenetics To date, the exact etiology of this complicated disease remains unknown.
