|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01937923|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : September 10, 2013
Last Update Posted : November 1, 2016
This observational study will establish a clinical baseline and measure changes over time in movement, thinking, behavior, brain imaging, blood and spinal fluid markers in subjects with early stage Huntington's disease. Participants enrolled in this study may be eligible to participate in a future planned study of stem cell therapy for Huntington's Disease (HD).
In-person study visits occur at screening, baseline, and every 6 months thereafter for a minimum of 12 months, with interim phone call assessments.
