What is Huntington’s Disease?

Huntington’s disease (HD) is an inherited degenerative neurological condition affecting the brain and central nervous system that results in the progressive loss of mental and physical capacities.

Huntington’s disease progressively strips away the affected individual’s ability to walk, talk, eat, think and reason; death ensues from complications.
