There can be many challenges - physically, financially, and emotionally - faced every day by people living with diseases of the central nervous system and their families. Neurodegenerative conditions and movement disorders such as multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s Disease (PD), Huntington’s Disease (HD) and Tardive Dyskinesia (TD) affect every aspect of life, with even the most mundane tasks requiring great courage and effort. It is expected that by 2030, we will see a rise of between 30-50% in the incidence of such diseases, with an associated need for increased treatment and care. Teva provides a number of products to treat patients with neurological and neurodegenerative disorders – with a focus on helping patients manage their condition.

PREVENT-HD (formerly known as PREDICT-HD) invites volunteers to participate in a research study to help develop and refine the tools that can be used in clinical trials to measure the effectiveness of treatment before the disease impacts daily life. We want to build a case for testing these treatments much earlier in people at risk for HD. Starting treatment sooner may help delay the start of symptoms or slow down the progression of the disease.
We are currently enrolling adults from HD families. Criteria includes:
People who have been gene tested for HD, who carry or do not carry the HD gene
People who have recently been diagnosed with HD and are in the very early stages of the disease
People who are gene-positive, but are not currently showing any symptoms (pre-symptomatic)
uniQure is delivering on the promise of gene therapy – single treatments with potentially transformative results. We are utilizing our technology to advance a pipeline of gene therapies to treat patients with neurodegenerative diseases, and other severe genetic diseases. We are currently conducting a phase 1/2 trial in Huntington’s disease, the first gene therapy ever in a clinical trial for HD. Our most advance program is a phase 3 clinical trial in hemophilia B.
Our clinic provides care to those who are living with Huntington's disease or who are at risk for the disease.
