The FDA has approved valbenazine, also known as INGREZZA, as a treatment for the movement symptoms of Huntington’s disease
Replacing cells with HD in the brain could be an effective treatment strategy. Recent work shows that glia injected into mouse brains take over and oust the older cells, but for a surprising reason - because of age, not HD!
Both PTC Therapeutics and uniQure have shared updates from their respective clinical trials, testing different huntingtin-lowering approaches. We explore the data presented from both of these studies and what this means for HD family members.

The phase 3 trial missed its primary endpoint of slowing loss of function in Huntington’s disease
A new article summarizes what the Huntington's disease field has found about a type of brain cell called an astrocyte. These star-shaped cells help keep brain cells healthy and could be leveraged for developing new HD therapeutics.
Researchers look at the cause and effect of various forms of the HTT protein. They find both expanded and unexpanded HTT contribute to brain cell communication and the brain has an amazing capacity to compensate for changes related to disease
Roche released a community letter in early 2023, to share that their Phase II clinical trial to study the huntingtin-lowering drug, tominersen, is now underway. In this article, we summarise the latest news about this huntingtin-lowering drug.
