    • Tyrosinemia Type 1 and symptoms of ADHD: Biochemical mechanisms and implications for treatment and prognosis 

      Barone, Helene; Bliksrud, Yngve Thomas; Elgen, Irene Bircow; Szigetvari, Peter Daniel; Kleppe, Rune; Ghorbani, Sadaf; Hansen, Eirik Vangsøy; Haavik, Jan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-10-21)
      Hereditary tyrosinemia Type 1 (HT‐1) is a rare metabolic disease where the enzyme catalyzing the final step of tyrosine breakdown is defect, leading to accumulation of toxic metabolites. Nitisinone inhibits the degradation ...
