Latest Huntingtin Stories
A new light-based technique for measuring levels of the toxic protein that causes Huntington's disease (HD) has been used to demonstrate that the protein builds up gradually in blood cells.
Pair helps remove and prevent misfolding of proteins that cause neurodegeneration
Researchers recently announced that they were able to produce stem cells from skin cells from a person who had severe, early-onset form of Huntington Disease.
Using a human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) from a patient suffering from Huntington’s disease, researchers at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging have corrected the genetic mutation that is responsible for the disease.
Researchers at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging have corrected the genetic mutation responsible for Huntington's Disease (HD) using a human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) that came from a patient suffering from the incurable, inherited neurodegenerative disorder.
More than 15,000 Americans have Huntington’s disease, a fatal condition marked by uncontrolled movements and cognitive and psychiatric problems. Currently, there are no available treatments to alter the effects of Huntington’s disease, but a new study brings researchers one step closer to finding one.
With a single drug treatment, researchers at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine can silence the mutated gene responsible for Huntington's disease, slowing and partially reversing progression of the fatal neurodegenerative disorder in animal models.
A new gene-silencing strategy can reverse core symptoms associated with Huntington's disease.
