When genes are unstable: targeting somatic instability in HD

When genes are unstable: targeting somatic instability in HD

CAG repeats expand in some parts of the body and brain as people with HD get older, a phenomenon known as somatic instability. Learn more about how researchers are exploring somatic instability and DNA repair to design therapies for HD.

HD Young Adult Study defines the sweet spot: symptom-free with measurable changes

HD Young Adult Study defines the sweet spot: symptom-free with measurable changes

We know that HD-related changes can occur many years before symptom onset, but how early do those changes begin? A team of researchers set out to determine that with a new comprehensive study in pre-manifest HD young adults.
