    huntingtons disease by Daniel Tesfai. huntingtons disease actuallyaffects the lives of entire families emotionally and socially.
    Huntingtons Disease by Daniel Tesfai Huntington's Disease (HD) is a terrible brain disorder for which there is no treatment or cure. HD slowly takes away the affected person's ability to walk, think, talk and react. Eventually, the person with HD becomes totally independent, needing other people's help desperately Huntingtons Disease actually affects the lives of entire families: emotionally and socially. HD is now recognized as one of the more common genetic disorders. More than a quarter of a million Americans have HD or are at risk of inheriting the disease from an affected parent. HD affects as many people as Hemophilia, Cystic Fibrosis or muscular dystrophy. Early symptoms of Huntingtons Disease may affect ability or mobility and include depression, mood swings, forgetfulness, clumsiness, and uncontrollable twitching. As the disease progresses, it becomes hard to concentrate and control your body movements. Walking, speaking and swallowing abilities slowly become more of an effort. Eventually the person is unable to care for him or herself. Death can come easy by choking or heart failure. HD usually begins between the ages of 30 and 45, though sometimes it may occur as early as the age of 2. Children who develop the the disease hardly ever live to be an adult. HD affects males and females equally of all races. Each child of a person with HD has a 50-50 chance of inheriting the fatal gene. Everyone who carries the gene will develop the disease. In 1993, a test was given on the HD gene in order to determine which certain people can get it. The test cannot predict when symptoms will begin.

    Huntington's Disease
    is an inherited degenerative neuropsychiatric disorder which affects both body and mind. Symptoms most commonly begin between the ages of 35 and 50, although onset may occur any time from childhood to old age. Research is progressing rapidly, but there is currently no cure. Huntington's disease is inherited in an autosommal dominant fashion. Each child of an affected parent has a 50 % chance of inheriting the disease and is said to be at risk . The discovery of the HD gene in 1993 has made it possible to test at-risk individuals for Huntington's disease before symptoms occur. In the absence of a cure, however, the decision to be tested or not remains a difficult one, and there are many important legal, financial and personal considerations. For more information about the genetic basis of Huntington's disease, you may wish to visit the Online Mendellian Inheritance in Man (OMIN) to learn about the genetic basis or the DNA library at the National Library of Medicine to see the actual gene sequence.

    Huntington disease (HD) is a genetic disorder of the central nervous system with symptoms usually appearing in adults within the third or fourth decade of life, although symptoms can occur in individuals younger or older than this. Within the same family, the symptoms vary both in their rate of progression and in the age of onset. Symptoms may include involuntary movements and loss of motor control. In addition, personality changes may occur, with loss of memory and decreased mental capacity. Symptoms in individuals, as well as confirmation of diagnosis in other family members, are used to determine the diagnosis. Huntington disease is inherited as an autosomal dominant condition. The human body contains 100 trillion cells. A nucleus is inside each human cell (except red blood cells). Each nucleus contains 46 chromosome arranged in 23 pairs. One chromosome of every pair is from each parent. The chromosome are filled from each tightly coiled strands of DNA. Genes are segments of DNA that contain instructions to make proteins and other building blocks of life.
    An affected parent passes either the HD gene, or the other working gene, to their off spring. There is a 50% (1 in 2) chance at each pregnancy that a child of an affected parent will receive the gene for Huntington disease. The age of onset, degree and type of clinical symptoms, as well as rate of progression varies with HD.

    Botulinum Toxin Therapy Epidural Injection Trigger Point Injection Vagus Nerve Stimulation RESOURCES Clinical Trials Links Videos ABOUT US Pressroom Testimonial Overview Huntington’s disease (HD) is a fatal hereditary disease that destroys neurons in areas of the brain involved in the emotions, intellect, and movement. The course of Huntington’s is characterized by chorea, progressive loss of mental abilities, and the development of psychiatric problems. Chorea is the occurrence of jerking uncontrollable movement of the limbs, trunk, and face. Huntington’s disease progresses without remission over 10 to 25 years and patients ultimately are unable to care for themselves. Huntington’s disease usually appears in middle age (30-50 years), but can develop in younger and older people. Juvenile HD (also called Westphal variant or akinetic-rigid HD) develops before the age of 20, progresses rapidly, and produces different symptoms. Instead of developing chorea, children develop akinesia, a condition of muscle rigidity in which the patient moves little, if at all.

    Huntingtons Disease
    Thank you for taking a look at this page. May of you already know, and some have no clue about how Huntington's Disease affects my life. During my birth, my mother displayed some abnormal movements. Five years later it was determined to be Huntington's Chorea. My mom was not aware she was at risk for this disease because she had been adopted. While growing up, my dad and I took care of her until eventually we could not safely leave her side. At that point we made a decision to put her in a nursing home. She is currently living at Ingleside Nursing Home in Mt. Horeb, where they take wonderful care of her. We visit her every week, and take her out as much as possible. I have a 50% chance of also getting Huntington's Disease. This is a scary thing, but I have known about this for most of my life. There is a test available, but I haven't had the guts to take it yet. I'm sure I will before I start a family though. I am very open about all of this, so if anybody has any questions about the disease, or the personal factors of it, feel free to contact me. I really do want more people to have knowledge about it, since it is such a rare disease. What is HD?

    "When you cut through all the detail, this could be a drug that is very significant for the treatment of Huntington's", Rick Stewart, Amarin CEO Amarin Corp is a $25 million British company that licenses and sells drugs to treat nerve disorders, like Parkinson's Disease. Amarin's chief executive, Rick Stewart, hails from SkyePharma a British drug developer. Stewart says that Amarin's research partner, Laxdale of Scotland, will follow up any day now on preliminary findings from a Phase III study of LAX-101, a treatment for Huntington's Disease. "This is the first time we have seen anything positive for Huntington's," says Stewart, who is shaking his head about the market's treatment of the preliminary findings. A study of 83 qualifying patients took place at Harvard, Emory and Johns Hopkins universities, and in the United Kingdom and Canada. Huntington's, a genetic disorder, has been diagnosed in about 30,000 Americans and an equal number of patients in Europe. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted LAX-101 a so-called fast-track designation.

    Med.Sci 532 Structure-Function Huntington Disease This is an autosomally-inherited, dominant disorder in which the patient begins to exhibit symptoms in the third to fourth decades. Patients with Huntington Disease (HD) initially have a tendency to fidget which over months or years develops into jerky, choreiform movements. HD usually progresses over a 10 to 25 year period. As the disease progresses it leads to dementia and usually death from incurrent infection. There is a high incidence of suicide among patients with HD. Pathologically, there is atrophy of certain forebrain structures including the entire cerebral cortex and even more notably of the caudate nucleus and putamen The head of the caudate is reduced to a narrow brownish band of tissue that is flattened or concave. In normal brain the ratio of small neurons to large neurons in the corpus striatum is approximately 160:1 in Huntingtons patients the ratio is reduced to 40:1 with a marked decrease in the number of astrocytes. The gene for this disease has been isolated to the short arm of chromosome 4. For more information concerning Huntington

    Personal Note from Renette
    From July 1997 to July 1999, this web site was not maintained because my husband Paul had a malignant brain tumor. He died on April 11, 1999. During his illness I sent email messages to the family telling about options for treatment, symptoms he was having, etc. I have put those messages together into the "Diary of a Brain Tumor Patient's Wife" and put it on my web site at: I have now started working on this site again in a limited fashion, but it no longer includes the most current information on Huntington's Disease.
