What are fatty acid oxidation disorders, and why are they related to mitochondrial disorders?

Additional areas of discussion include:

  • Do patients with mitochondrial defects also have the potential to have fatty acid oxidation defects?
  • How do disorders of metabolism such as FAOD and mitochondrial disease impact the body’s ability to grow, develop and function?
  • What is the current focus in research for understanding and treating FAODs?
