The American foundation Cure ACH has just granted Karin Lykke-Hartmann DKK 199,000 towards her research into ACH, a rare syndrome where children experience short-term paralysis of one side of the body. 

Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood – AHC is an incurable, rare and painful neurological disorder which causes episodes with temporary paralysis which can last from minutes to days.

Karin Lykke-Hartmann hopes that the grant will help to fill-in some significant gaps in knowledge about ACH and – in the longer term – provide treatment clues.
