In people with the rare neurological disease ALSP, the white matter in the brain shrivels up, resulting in death. New research by Erasmus MC scientists shows what is going on: loss of microglia, the brain’s ‘cleaning cells.’
Erasmus MC will join five European Reference Networks (ERNs) for complex and rare diseases as of January 1, 2022. This will make Erasmus MC a participant in 23 of the 24 existing networks.
At Erasmus MC, doctors, psychologists and scientists have started an expertise center for individuals with autism spectrum disorder with a rare genetic cause. Their goal: better care and scientific insights.
