touchNEUROLOGY announces a new partnership with the TSC Alliance
The TSC Alliance® is an internationally recognized nonprofit that does everything it takes to improve the lives of people with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). Nearly one million people worldwide have TSC. Some live independently with few symptoms while others require complex care.
TSC is a rare genetic disease that causes tumors to grow in different organs, from the brain and heart to the lungs and kidneys to the skin and eyes. Changes in the brain caused by TSC have the biggest impact on quality of life, from seizures and developmental delays to intellectual disabilities, behavioral challenges and autism. TSC is the leading genetic cause of epilepsy, including infantile spasms. A strong correlation also exists between TSC and autism—an estimated 40-50% of individuals with TSC have autism spectrum disorder.
