Brief Summary:
WVE-HDSNP1-002 is an open-label extension (OLE) study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, PK, PD, and clinical effects of WVE-120101 in adult patients with early manifest HD who carry a targeted single nucleotide polymorphism, rs362307 (SNP1). To participate in the study, patients must have completed the Phase 1b/2a clinical study WVE-HDSNP1-001.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: WVE-120101 (Dose A) Drug: WVE-120101
WVE-120101 is a stereopure antisense oligonucleotide (ASO). It is administered monthly via intrathecal injection.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety: Number of patients with adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 101 (end of study) ]
  2. Safety: Number of patients with a severe AE [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 101 (end of study) ]
  3. Safety: Number of patients with serious AEs (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 101 (end of study) ]
  4. Safety and Tolerability: Number of patients who withdraw due to AEs [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 101 (end of study) ]
