  3. pmc Pyridoxine-dependent seizures in Dutch patients: diagnosis by elevated urinary alpha-aminoadipic semialdehyde levels
    Levinus A Bok
    Department of Paediatrics, Maxima Medical Center, Veldhoven, The Netherlands
    Arch Dis Child 92:687-9. 2007
    ..Recently alpha-aminoadipic semialdehyde (alpha-AASA) dehydrogenase deficiency was identified as a major cause of PDS, which causes accumulation of both alpha-AASA and pipecolic acid (PA) in body fluids...

    Levinus A Bok
    Department of Paediatrics, Maxima Medical Centre, P O Box 7777, 5500 MB, Veldhoven, The Netherlands
    Eur J Pediatr 169:297-303. 2010

    Department of Pediatrics, Maxima Medical Center, Veldhoven, The Netherlands
    Epilepsia 51:2406-11. 2010
