Benign familial neonatal convulsions (BFNC) is a rare, clinically and genetically heterogenous epileptic disorder. Two voltage gated potassium genes, KCNQ2 and KCNQ3, have been identified as genes responsible for BFNC1 and BFNC2 respectively.

BACKGROUND We evaluated the influence of folate pathway polymorphisms on high-dose methotrexate (HD-MTX) related toxicity in paediatric patients with T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). PATIENTS AND METHODS In total, 30 NHL patients were genotyped for selected folate pathway polymorphisms. RESULTS Carriers of at least one MTHFR 677T allele had(More)
