BACKGROUND Huntington's disease (HD) is a rare triplet repeat (CAG) disorder. Advanced, multi-centre, multi-national research frameworks are needed to study simultaneously multiple complementary aspects of HD. This includes the natural history of HD, its management and the collection of clinical information and biosamples for research. METHODS We report(More)
Several candidate modifier genes which, in addition to the pathogenic CAG repeat expansion, influence the age at onset (AO) in Huntington disease (HD) have already been described. The aim of this study was to replicate association of variations in the N-methyl D-aspartate receptor subtype genes GRIN2A and GRIN2B in the "REGISTRY" cohort from the European(More)
The aim of this study was to identify determinants of functional disability, patient's quality of life (QoL) and caregivers' burden in Huntington's disease (HD). Eighty HD patients participated in the study. Motor and behavioral disturbances as well as cognitive impairment were assessed using motor, behavioral and cognitive parts of the Unified Huntington(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Bradykinesia, which is commonly defined as slowness of movements, is one of the cardinal signs of Parkinson's disease (PD) and parkinsonian syndromes. Simple clinical rating scales are used commonly to measure bradykinesia in routine clinical practice although this kind of assessment is biased. The aim of the study was to evaluate the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There are several instrumental and clinical methods to assess hand tremor. The clinical methods, e.g. rating scales, have the advantage that they are available to most clinicians; however, they require experience, and are not as repeatable as instrumental methods. The study describes the use of a method based on a digitizing tablet(More)
