The universal goal for the international HD research focus is to find treatments that reverse, slow or prevent the progression of HD.  The Huntington Society of Canada and HD Canadian researchers are a key part of this effort and the Society has a unique role to play.

Huntingtin Lowering

Gene-silencing (otherwise known as huntingtin lowering therapy) offers a promising way to slow or stop Huntington disease (HD). By using anti-sense oligonucleotides (ASOs) to prevent the HD gene from producing huntingtin protein, this approach targets the disease right at its root.
