Mice epilepsy cure raises hopes

Prospects of cure for brain disorder brighten as scientists halt epilepsy in mice.

    The brain disorder epilepsy affects around 50 million people worldwide.

    A large majority of cases - 90 per cent - are found in developing nations where sufferers do not have access to treatment.

    But now, scientists have found a cure for epilepsy in mice that is offering hope to human sufferers.
