Huntington’s disease is a genetic disorder that affects around 1 in every 10,000 people and damages nerve cells in the brain. This causes neurological symptoms affecting movement, cognition and behaviour.

CASE WESTERN RESERVE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE SCIENTISTS DEVELOP THERAPEUTIC PROTEIN, PROTECT NERVE CELLS FROM HUNTINGTON’S DISEASE
A new scientific study reveals one way to stop proteins from triggering an energy failure inside nerve cells during Huntington’s disease. Huntington’s disease is an inherited genetic disorder caused by mutations in the gene that encodes huntingtin protein. Approximately 30,000 Americans have mutant huntingtin protein which can impair energy-producing parts of nerve cells called mitochondria.
