Huntington's

  • Is there a list for candidates for Huntington's stem cell research?

    At present, research on stem cells in Huntington's Chorea is being done in the laboratory and not on patients.

    When clinical trials start on patients, this will be mentioned in "Headlines", the quarterly publication of the Neurological Foundation.

  • Is there research into Huntington's disease being done in New Zealand?

    Professor Richard Faull at the Auckland School of Medicine leads a very active team of researchers. A recent important discovery is that there are stem cells located close to the area damaged in Huntinton's Disease. These cells have the potential to replace the damaged cells. Research uses the tissue from the Brian Bank, established by Professor Faull and funded by the Neurological Foundation of New Zealand.
