Scientists use human fetal tissue to look at HD brain development. But what do developmental changes mean when symptoms don’t occur until decades after birth?
Another clue about the normal function of the huntingtin protein; a team of scientists has recently found that huntingtin seems to play an important role in repairing damaged nerve cells
HDBuzz reports from the annual Huntington’s disease therapeutics conference in Palm Springs
Scientists screen the ENTIRE genome to find new potential therapeutic targets for HD. This ambitious study provides a wealth of data for HD researchers
Researchers show that highly expanded CAGs in the HD gene can cause early developmental changes using 3D brain models called organoids. What’d they find?
New insights into the huntingtin protein, and further progress in turning genetic quirks that modify the course of HD into treatments, on the final day of the therapeutics conference
Updates from day 3 of the Huntington’s Disease Therapeutics Conference: huntingtin protein - and lowering it
A surprising new paper sheds light on the role of the HD gene early in development. Should we worry?
Completely removing normal huntingtin in adults may disrupt healthy brain function, a recent study suggests.
