Ol lain  researcher bilong Australia ibin painim aut long wanpela  gene em isave kamapim kain sik long  kuru ol i kolim epilepsy.

Despela painim aut iken opim rot bilong  ol iken mekim ol wok traim or genetic testing.

Florey Institute of Neuroscience na  Mental Health ibin kamapim despela wokpainim  na ibin painim wanpela gene em isave kamapim  focal  epilepsy em iken ikam yet long ol tubuna or lain famili bilong bipo.

Lida ibin igo pas long despela research, Professor Ingrid Scheffer,itok despela painim aut i bigpela samting.

"This discovery is paradigm shifting," Prof Scheffer  i tok.

"It means that if you have focal epilepsy and there is no cause known, then this gene should be tested to look for a mutation."

Pastaim ol ibin save ting focal epilepsy isave kamap taim igat igat sampela bagarap i kamap long kuru or  tumour.
