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?
