Health News - Huntingtons Disease

New discovery is a step towards developing Huntington's disease treatments before symptoms appear
Early warning signs of Huntington's disease have been uncovered in a sheep carrying the human HD mutation, leading the way for new insight into this devastating illness, a new study in Scientific... (Medical News Today)

Hope for new treatment for Huntington's disease
Researchers working at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden and University of Southern Denmark have managed to produce short synthetic DNA analogues - oligonucleotides - that bind direct to the gene... (Medical News Today)

'Helper cells' can turn toxic in brain injury and diseases
Astrocytes induced by central nervous system injury and disease normally help repair damage. Now, a study finds some can turn rogue and kill cells instead. (Medical News Today)

Huntington's disease linked to dysfunction of brain structure
Study helps explain why gene mutation causes debilitating symptoms and loss of brain tissue. (Medical News Today)

Tufts researchers uncover possible source of genetic error causing multiple diseases
Tufts University researchers have discovered a possible explanation for the occurrence of a genetic error that causes over a dozen neuromuscular and neurodegenerative disorders, including... (Medical News Today)

Huntington's disease affects muscle as well as brain
After studying cell processes in mice, researchers suggest Huntington’s disease involves defects in muscle maturation as well as death of brain cells. (Medical News Today)

Scripps Florida scientists pinpoint regulator of amphetamine induced motor activity
In new findings that could have an impact on the development of therapies for a number of currently untreatable brain disorders such as Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases, scientists from the... (Medical News Today)

A research effort at the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona, Spain, reveals new molecular mechanisms of Huntington's disease. (Medical News Today)

Stanford study identifies new biomarkers for Huntington's disease
Researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine have identified several new biological markers to measure the progression of the inherited neurodegenerative disorder Huntington's disease (HD). (Medical News Today)

Activity of Huntington's disease gene curbed for 6 months in mice
A single injection of a new treatment has reduced the activity of the gene responsible for Huntington's disease for several months in a trial in mice. (Medical News Today)

Researchers identify how a single gene can protect against causes of neurodegenerative diseases
New research has identified how cells protect themselves against 'protein clumps' known to be the cause of neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's disease. (Medical News Today)

Novel compound has promise for treatment of Huntington's disease
A major, multi-institutional study based at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) has identified a promising treatment strategy for Huntington's disease (HD). (Medical News Today)

Huntington's risk genes '10 times more common than previously thought'
A study of more than 7,300 adults suggests the number of people at low risk of Huntington's disease is 10 times higher than previous estimates report. (Medical News Today)

New brain map could enable novel therapies for autism and Huntington's disease
USC scientists have mapped an uncharted portion of the mouse brain to explain which circuit disruptions might occur in disorders such as Huntington's disease and autism. (Medical News Today)

Swapping sick for healthy brain cells slows Huntington's disease
Researchers have successfully reduced the symptoms and slowed the progression of Huntington's disease in mice using healthy human brain cells. (Medical News Today)

Scripps Florida scientists create compound that erases disease-causing RNA defects
In an important new study with implications for the treatment of dozens of incurable diseases, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have for the first time... (Medical News Today)

Neurodegenerative disease damage reversed in fruit flies
Scientists have reversed damage to nerve cells by inhibiting two metabolites that are linked to nerve cell death, raising hopes for a future treatment. (Medical News Today)

A new player revealed in nerve growth process
Role of adaptor protein CD2AP in neuron sprouting discovered by UofL researchers could lead to therapies for Alzheimer's disease, stroke recovery and spinal cord injury. (Medical News Today)

UCI team finds method to reduce accumulation of damaging Huntington's disease protein
A study appearing April 14 in the journal Neuron suggests there may be a new way to change the damaging course of Huntington disease. (Medical News Today)

A common brain cell shapes the nervous system in unexpected ways
More than half of our brains are made up of glial cells, which wrap around nerve fibers and insulate them--similarly to how the plastic casing of an electric cable insulates the copper wire... (Medical News Today)

A newly discovered way for cells to die
Some cells are meant to live, and some are meant to die. The linker cell of Caenorhabditis elegans, a tiny worm that is a favored model organism for biologists, is among those destined for... (Medical News Today)

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. (Medical News Today)

Songbirds pinpoint effects of Huntington's disease
