Huntington’s disease (HD) is a heritable and fatal neurodegenerative disease characterized by a triad of motor, cognitive and neuropsychiatric symptoms. A common and particularly detrimental neuropsychiatric alteration in HD gene carriers is irritability, which frequently manifests as abrupt and...
Huntington’s disease (HD) is a fatal, inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by a mutation in the huntingtin gene (HTT). While mutant HTT is present ubiquitously throughout life, HD onset typically occurs in mid-life, suggesting that aging may play an active role in pathogenesis. Cellular...
Background:The average age for the onset of Huntington’s disease (HD) is an age when many people have children and caretaking responsibilities; HD is therefore likely to impact the whole family, including children and adolescents. Despite an increased understanding of the challenges for young...
Background:Huntington’s disease (HD) is an autosomal-dominant neurodegenerative disorder inducing motor, psychiatric changes and cognitive decline, characterized pathologically by striatal atrophy. Pathological changes in the extra-striatal structures, such as the substantia nigra (SN), and...
Background:Huntington’s disease (HD) is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by expansion of CAG repeats in the Huntingtin gene (HTT). Studies suggest cortical to striatal (C-S) projections, which regulate movement and provide cell survival signals to SPNs, are altered in the...
Background:Dysphagia is common in Huntington’s disease (HD) affecting all phases of swallowing. Correlations exist between non-instrumental measures of dysphagia and clinical features of HD, including age, disease duration and degree of motor impairment. Lack of instrumental data limits our...
Background:Open-HART was an open-label extension of HART, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of pridopidine in Huntington disease (HD). Previously, we reported safety and exploratory efficacy data after 36 months of treatment with pridopidine 45 mg twice daily. In the interim,...
In this edition of the Huntington’s Disease Clinical Trials Corner we expand on the UniQure AMT-130 and on the Neurocrine Biosciences KINECT-HD trials, and list all currently registered and ongoing clinical trials in Huntington’s disease.
