Principal   researcher:

Anssi   Auvinen

Brief   description:

Epilepsy is one of the most   common chronic neurological diseases. Its prevalence has been estimated as   1%, corresponding to approximately 50 000 patients in Finland. Several   diseases occur more frequently in patients with epilepsy than other population   and they also have an increased mortality. A cohort of almost 28,000 patients   with epilepsy has been established from Social Insurance Institution database   and a reference cohort formed through the Population Register Centre. This   project deals with reproductive health and occurrence of disease among   epilepsy patients. Miia Artama has completed a PhD in the project (http://tampub.uta.fi/handle/10024/67765)   and Olli Nevalainen (among others) is engaged in the current activities.
