Prominent publications by Amedeo Bianchi

KOL-Index: 18670 . PURPOSE: To dissect the genetics of benign familial epilepsies of the first year of life and to assess the extent of the genetic overlap between benign familial neonatal seizures (BFNS), benign familial neonatal-infantile seizures (BFNIS), and benign familial infantile seizures (BFIS). METHODS: Families with at least two first-degree relatives affected by focal seizures starting within the ...

KOL-Index: 11057 . BACKGROUND: Genetic generalised epilepsy is the most common type of inherited epilepsy. Despite a high concordance rate of 80% in monozygotic twins, the genetic background is still poorly understood. We aimed to investigate the burden of rare genetic variants in genetic generalised epilepsy. METHODS: For this exome-based case-control study, we used three different genetic generalised ...

KOL-Index: 10296 . OBJECTIVE: To perform an extensive search for genomic rearrangements by microarray-based comparative genomic hybridization in patients with epilepsy. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING: Epilepsy centers in Italy. PATIENTS: Two hundred seventy-nine patients with unexplained epilepsy, 265 individuals with nonsyndromic mental retardation but no epilepsy, and 246 healthy control ...

KOL-Index: 9506 . Genetic generalized epilepsies (GGEs) have a lifetime prevalence of 0.3% and account for 20-30% of all epilepsies. Despite their high heritability of 80%, the genetic factors predisposing to GGEs remain elusive. To identify susceptibility variants shared across common GGE syndromes, we carried out a two-stage genome-wide association study (GWAS) including 3020 patients with GGEs and 3954 ...

KOL-Index: 7656 . PURPOSE: Genetic generalized epilepsies (GGEs) have a lifetime prevalence of 0.3% with heritability estimates of 80%. A considerable proportion of families with siblings affected by GGEs presumably display an oligogenic inheritance. The present genome-wide linkage meta-analysis aimed to map: (1) susceptibility loci shared by a broad spectrum of GGEs, and (2) seizure type-related genetic ...

KOL-Index: 6167 . POLG gene encodes the catalytic subunit of DNA polymerase gamma, essential for mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) replication and repair. Mutations in POLG have been linked to a spectrum of clinical phenotypes, resulting in autosomal recessive or dominant mitochondrial diseases. These mutations have been associated with heterogeneous phenotypes, presenting with varying severity and at different ...

KOL-Index: 3654 . Objective: We investigated the contribution to sporadic focal epilepsies (FE) of ultrarare variants in genes coding for the components of complexes regulating mechanistic Target Of Rapamycin (mTOR)complex 1 (mTORC1). Methods: We collected genetic data of 121 Italian isolated FE cases and 512 controls by Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) and single-molecule Molecular Inversion Probes (smMIPs) ...

KOL-Index: 1285 . PURPOSE: A recent genome-wide scan revealed a major susceptibility locus for idiopathic generalized epilepsies (IGEs) in the chromosomal region 8p12 in 32 IGE families without members with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME). This study explored the presence of an IGE locus in the chromosomal region 8p12. METHODS: Our study included 176 multiplex families of probands with common IGE ...
