Huntington's Disease

Huntington's Disease

More than a quarter of a million Americans have HD or are "at risk" of inheriting the disease from an affected parent. Huntington's Disease is a degenerative brain disorder for which there is, at present, no effective treatment or cure. HD slowly diminishes the affected individual's ability to walk, think, talk and reason. Eventually, the person with HD becomes totally dependent upon others for his or her care. Huntington's Disease profoundly affects the lives of entire families -- emotionally, socially and economically.

Disease Huntingtons

One of my grade school teachers who was exceptionally smart was diagnosed with the disease while I was in high school. When teaching, we saw no effects what so ever. Years later, I saw him in a wheel chair at the store. His mind was sharp as ever and he could speak ok, but that was fading like his ability to walk or use his left arm. He could see the inevitable coming that he wouldn't be able to use his brain and a year or so to think intelligently any more. That is the big killer of the disease. Its no quick, so people who have it have to watch, knowing what is starting to go and that they will lose certain functions soon. That is most heart wrenching to watch a person who knows that they will not be able to do things for themselves soon, but can not do anything about it.

Huntington's Disease News Medical & Diet Health

When I was about thirteen years old, I read a book by Lurlene McDaniel and it mentioned Huntington's Disease. I became really interested in it, and it inspired me to try to write a story about somebody with it. It never came through, though. Last night I was talking to my fiance about an idea I had for a short story, since I have one due in my Creative Writing class, and I was considering bringing that old idea up again.

I think it's such a sad case because there is nothing they can do about it. There has been no cure found, no remedy heard of for it. I can only imagine how difficult it has to be on the family to watch somebody you love degenerate right in front of your eyes, and you're powerless to stop it.

Huntington's disease gene dispensable in adult mice

Adult mice don't need the gene that, when mutated in humans, causes the inherited neurodegenerative disorder Huntington's disease. The finding suggests that treatment strategies for Huntington's that aim to shut off the huntingtin gene in adults -- now in early clinical stages -- could be safe. Ref. Source 8w.

New method to reduce accumulation of damaging Huntington's disease protein

There may be a new way to change the damaging course of Huntington disease, researchers report. They have shown that reducing the aberrant accumulation of a particular form of the mutant Huntingtin protein corresponds to improvement in symptoms and neuroinflammation in HD mice. Ref. Source 8p.
