Enroll-HD: Huntington Disease Observational Research

Purpose of the Study

Enroll-HD is a coordinated worldwide effort by approximately 45 Huntington Study Group (HSG) research centers to collect ongoing information from individuals who are affected by HD and those who are part of an HD family. The HSG is collecting this information in order to learn more about HD, potential treatments, and to plan future research studies of experimental drugs aimed at postponing the onset or slowing the progression of HD.
