Technological Innovation Provides Solution to Family Tremor

On May 25, Brain, a well-known international journal of Brain science, published online the important research results of Professor Xu Xingshun from Institute of Neuroscience and Professor Sun Miao from the First Affiliated Hospital of Soochow University. The paper is entitled "Essential earth as the Early Symptom of NOTCH2NLC Genetic-Related Repeat Expansion Disorder".




Professor Xu Xingshun has been focusing on research in related fields, collecting more than 10 families, including more than 100 patients, to study related pathogenesis. By cooperating with Professor Sun Miao and overcoming difficulties, a set of rapid detection system was built in the laboratory. Based on this system, several families previously misdiagnosed as Senile dementia, Parkinson's disease and peripheral neuropathy were diagnosed as NIID, which has important clinical significance.



The first author of this paper is Hao Chen, a clinical doctoral student of Soochow University, attending physician of neurology department of Affiliated Hospital of Xuzhou Medical University, corresponding author is Professor Xu Xingshun of Soochow University and Professor Miao Sun of the First Affiliated Hospital of Soochow University.
