Activity of Huntington’s disease gene curbed for six 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.
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.
