Huntington's disease is a hereditary and fatal brain disorder. There is no cure nor any disease modifying therapies to offer to the individuals that are affected of the disease. Nerve cells in the brain dies.
Åsa Petersén and her team have made completely new discoveries about Huntington's disease. They have seen that the involuntary movements at the onset of the disease are not at all the first symptoms. The disease starts long before that. Now they also have discovered what kind of nerve cells are affected.
Meet Åsa Petersén and her patient Tess.
