Enroll-HD is a study that aims to accelerate the development of therapies for Huntington's disease by collecting more uniform clinical data and biological samples to better understand the natural history of Huntington's.
About the study
The study will build a comprehensive and extremely valuable database of information that will be available for use by Huntington's researchers worldwide. Enroll-HD will also be used for identifying which volunteers may be suitable for forthcoming treatment trials.
Who can take part?
Any member of a family affected by Huntington's disease can take part*. This includes:
- Individuals who know they carry the expanded gene, whether or not they show signs and symptoms of the disease
- Individuals who are at risk of developing the disease (but have not undergone genetic testing)
- Individuals who have a family history of Huntington's but know they do not carry the expanded gene
- Spouses/partners (not blood-related) of family members with Huntington's
Children under the age of 18 with clinically diagnosed Juvenile Huntington’s disease may be included in this study with the consent of a parent or legal guardian.
(* there are some restrictions based on medications being taken, your Enroll-HD site can advise further).
