What is Huntington's Disease?
Is there any treatment?
Most drugs used to treat the symptoms of HD have side effects such as fatigue, restlessness, or hyperexcitability. It is extremely important for people with HD to maintain physical fitness as much as possible, as individuals who exercise and keep active tend to do better than those who do not.
What is the prognosis?

Caring for People with Huntington's Disease
Huntington's Disease is an inherited degenerative neuropsychiatric disorder which affects both body and mind. Symptoms most commonly begin between the ages of 35 and 50, although onset may occur any time from childhood to old age. Research is progressing rapidly, but there is currently no cure. Huntington's disease is inherited in an autosommal dominant fashion. Each child of an affected parent has a 50 % chance of inheriting the disease and is said to be at risk . The discovery of the HD gene in 1993 has made it possible to test at-risk individuals for Huntington's disease before symptoms occur. In the absence of a cure, however, the decision to be tested or not remains a difficult one, and there are many important legal, financial and personal considerations. For more information about the genetic basis of Huntington's disease, you may wish to visit the Online Mendellian Inheritance in Man (OMIN) to learn about the genetic basis or the DNA library at the National Library of Medicine to see the actual gene sequence. The clinical features of Huntington's disease can be thought of as a triad of emotional, cognitive and motor disturbances. Symptoms include chorea (dance-like involuntary movements), clumsiness, slurred speech, depression, irritability and apathy. Cognitive losses include intellectual speed, attention and short-term memory.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Huntington's disease Classification and external resources
A microscope image of Medium spiny neurons (yellow) with nuclear inclusions µm ICD G ... MeSH Huntington's disease chorea , or disorder HD ), is a progressive neurodegenerative genetic disorder that affects muscle coordination and leads to cognitive decline and dementia . It typically becomes noticeable in middle age. HD is the most common genetic cause of abnormal involuntary writhing movements called chorea and is much more common in people of Western European descent than in those from Asia or Africa. The disease is caused by an autosomal dominant mutation on either of an individual's two copies of a gene called Huntingtin , which means any child of an affected parent has a 50% risk of inheriting the disease. In rare situations where both parents have an affected gene, or either parent has two affected copies, this risk is greatly increased. Physical symptoms of Huntington's disease can begin at any age from infancy to old age, but usually begin between 35 and 44 years of age. About 6% of cases start before the age of 21 years with an akinetic-rigid syndrome; they progress faster and vary slightly. The variant is classified as juvenile akinetic-rigid or Westphal variant HD The Huntingtin gene normally provides the genetic information for a protein that is also called "Huntingtin". The mutation of the Huntingtin gene codes for a different form of the protein, whose presence results in gradual damage to specific areas of the brain. The exact way this happens is not fully understood.

It was established through the individual efforts of Sally Hogan, a spouse and mother of HD-affected individuals, and Dr. Milton Ettinger, the now retired Chief of Neurology. We have cared for hundreds of patients and families touched by HD over the past 25 years. The multidisciplinary HD team of care providers, in addition to providing patient care, has provided educational services for a number of students of nursing, medicine, genetic counseling, psychology, neuropsychology, chaplaincy, physical therapy, occupatinal therapy, dietary and speechpathology

Huntington's Disease Treatment
What is the Treatment for Huntington's Disease?
Physicians may prescribe a number of medications to help control emotional and movement problems associated with Huntington's disease. It is important to remember however, that while medicines may help keep these clinical symptoms under control, there is no treatment to stop or reverse the course of the disease. In August 2008 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved tetrabenazine to treat Huntington's chorea, making it the first drug approved for use in the United States to treat the disease. Antipsychotic drugs, such as haloperidol, or other drugs, such as clonazepam, may help to alleviate choreic movements and may also be used to help control hallucinations, delusions, and violent outbursts. Antipsychotic drugs, however, are not prescribed for another form of muscle contraction associated with Huntington's disease, called dystonia, and may in fact worsen the condition, causing stiffness and rigidity. These medications may also have severe side effects, including sedation, and for that reason should be used in the lowest possible doses.
