On Monday, 11th December, 2017 Huntington’s disease was back in the international spotlight – the last time the disease hit the headlines was when the gene was discovered in 1993. Social media has been buzzing with news of a research breakthrough. A study showed that a drug, Ionis-HTTRx, could lower the amount of the mutant protein “huntingtin” (mHTT) in individuals with early stage HD. This is important because toxic mHTT is believed to be part of the mechanism leading to HD symptoms.
The next meeting in Port Macquarie will be on Friday 2nd February
