Huntington’s Disease Program
Boston University Neurology Associates offers individualized clinical services for patients and families affected by Huntington’s disease (HD). Patients are seen by a neurologist who specializes in HD as well as the movement disorder fellow and nurse. Nutrition, physical therapy, occupational therapy and genetic counseling resources are available upon referral. Patients also have the opportunity to participate in research, to both advance the understanding of HD through observational trials and help test new potential therapies. Boston University is a research site of the Huntington Study Group. Currently, studies are ongoing for people who are at risk for developing HD as well as observational and investigational drug trials.
