Our latest work on the ancient rare diseases is now out!
Read all about it in the October 2020 issue of the Lancet D&E.
This innovative study presents a case of osteopetrosis from Neolithic Albania.
You will find in it a thorough photographic and radiographic documentation, including also μCT images, of what is the oldest case for this disease known so far.
Publishing this article, we wanted to do more than just presenting a case study.
What you will read here is part of a larger set of research and outreach initiatives that our team is currently carrying out.
Our aims are to share knowledge and increase awareness about rare disease, starting from the past, to better understand the present and work together for the future.
