Read updates from clinical trials and scientific research on Huntington’s disease from Day 1 of the 2022 HDF Milton Wexler Biennial Symposium #HDF2022
HDBuzz is saddened to share the news that the VIBRANT-HD trial of the oral huntingtin-lowering drug, branaplam, has been temporarily suspended for the safety of participants.
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?
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.
COVID-19 update: what does it mean for HD families, how does it impact HD research, and how has it changed the way science works?
HDBuzz reports from the annual Huntington’s disease therapeutics conference in Palm Springs
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?
HDSA's frequently asked questions factsheet about the huntingtin-lowering trial ASO program was so good we stole it (with permission)
Finally, a big study that shows what childhood HD looks like. This will help us work out if new drugs work in children too
