  • Development of the Virtual Unified Huntington's Disease Rating Scale

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The Huntington Study Group currently holds the registered trademark for the Unified Huntington's Disease Rating Scale. The UHDRS® is a research tool which has been developed by the HSG to provide a uniform assessment of the clinical features and course of HD. The UHDRS® has undergone extensive reliability and validity testing and has been used as a major outcome measure by the HSG in controlled clinical trials. The purpose of this research study is to determine if a standard HD assessment (the UHDRS®) is as reliable when conducted virtually as it is when conducted at an in-person visit (vUHDRS)

  • Enroll -HD: A Prospective Registry Study in a Global Huntington's Disease Cohort

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Enroll-HD is a longitudinal, observational, multinational study that integrates two former Huntington's disease (HD) registries-REGISTRY in Europe, and COHORT in North America and Australasia-while also expanding to include sites in Latin America. More than 20,000 participants have now enrolled into the study. With annual assessments and no end date, Enroll-HD has built a large and rich database of longitudinal clinical data and biospecimens that form the basis for studies developing tools and biomarkers for progression and prognosis, identifying clinically-relevant phenotypic characteristics, and establishing clearly defined endpoints for interventional studies. Periodic cuts of the database are now available to any interested researcher to use in their research - visit to learn more.

  • Natural History Study in Huntington Disease Gene Expansion Carriers (HDGECs) - SHIELD HD

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    SHIELD HD is an international, multisite, prospective, longitudinal cohort natural history study to assess the natural history of HD and its biomarkers that are associated with modulation of the number of cytosine-adenine-guanine (CAG) repeats in the mutant Huntingtin (HTT) gene. Approximately 60 patients will be enrolled into the study and followed for up to 24 months at clinical sites in North America and Europe. The results of this study will inform assessments for a future interventional treatment trial.
