CURRENT RESEARCH STUDIES

ENROLL-HD (RECRUITING)

Enroll-HD is a worldwide observational study for Huntington’s disease families. It will monitor how the disease appears and changes over time in different people, and is open to people who either have HD or are at-risk.  Further information can be found at https://www.enroll-hd.org/

GENERATION-HD (ONGOING, RECRUITMENT CLOSED)

The GENERATION HD1 study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of RG6042 treatment given once every two months (bi-monthly) or once every four months (16-weeks) over a period of 25 months (approx. two years). Participants will be randomized to one of three treatment study arms: bi-monthly, every four months or placebo bi-monthly. This means for every two participants randomized to RG6042, one will receive placebo. The study is designed to test the potential effects of RG6042 compared to placebo. The study is “double-blind” meaning neither the participant nor his/her investigator or site staff will know which study arm the participant is assigned.  Further information can be found at https://www.huntingtonsociety.ca/generation-hd1/
