What is SUDEP?

Help Support SUDEP-Registry

FAMILIES

Families affected by a loved one's SUDEP-related death may feel overwhelmed with sorrow and confusion. You are not alone in your grief — other people who have been through similar experiences are out there, and are willing to be a support to you and your family.

MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS

Medical professionals are crucial partners in the success of the North American SUDEP Registry (NASR). To achieve our goal of high quality clinical information, we collect tissue and DNA samples on as many cases of SUDEP as possible.

RESEARCH & TISSUE DONATION

The purpose of the SUDEP Registry is to assess the risk factors and pathophysiologic mechanisms leading to sudden unexpected death in the general population of epilepsy patients. We will be collecting DNA and brain tissue for scientific studies about the causes of SUDEP.
