An Update on the PREDICT-HD Huntington Disease Study Part 3

Jane Paulsen, Ph.D., University of Iowa, Principal Investigator for PREDICT-HD, updates study participants and other interested persons on the Huntington disease study and recent study findings at the HDSA 2009 Convention in Phoenix, AZ on June 5, 2009. In this clip, Dr. Paulsen discusses brain imaging and behavior as an early indicator of Huntington disease, as well as other early markers such as work functioning. The PREDICT-HD study uses a variety of tests to examine the nature and pattern of neurobiological changes and neurobehavioral changes that occur in the period leading up to a diagnosis of Huntington disease. Researchers are learning more about the beginning changes in thinking skills, emotional regulation, brain structure and brain function as a person begins the transition from normal health to Huntington disease. These findings will be useful in designing effective clinical trials for treatment of early HD. Volunteer recruitment of gene positive, pre-symptomatic and gene negative individuals for PREDICT-HD is ongoing.
