Huntington’s Disease Research
Help us find an effective treatment for Huntington’s disease (HD).
HD is a condition that affects behaviour and cognition as well as mobility, swallowing and speech. We are working with researchers and health professionals to develop and deliver studies that slow the progression or delay the onset of Huntington’s disease (HD).
Currently, management of HD is aimed at treating the manifest symptoms, including choreic and dystonic movements and psychiatric disturbance. However, many treatments are prescribed ‘off label’ and there is currently limited evidence-based treatment strategies. As HD is a relatively uncommon condition, collaboration amongst centres expert in HD is required to undertake clinical studies.
