We thank the families whose members have carried the burden of LD; without their cooperation this study would not have been possible. We also gratefully acknowledge the cooperation and assistance of Joan Spellman, Bernadette Sakamoto, and Susan G. Pietsch-Escueta, who helped recruit families and coordinate family studies. Our study was approved by the Human Subjects Protection Committee at the UCLA School of Medicine and the West Los Angeles DVA Medical Center. Each participating patient or, in the case of minors or deceased relatives, the responsible adult, signed an informed-consent form. Our project was supported by NIH-NINDS program project 5PO1-NS21908 (to A.V.D.-E.), by special contributions from Mrs. A. Malenfant and the Quebec Lafora's Disease Organization, and by Mrs. Vera Faludi of Sweden.
