About the study

PREDICT-HD is a major international project run by the Huntington Study Group. It is an observational study looking for ways of predicting when people with the HD gene will start to show symptoms of the disease.

What is involved

The PREDICT-HD study involves one or two visits to the National Hospital per year, for four years. Each visit can last up to eight hours and involves an extensive set of tests, including blood tests, a magnetic resonance brain scan (MRI), psychology tests and questionnaires about your mood, thoughts and lifestyle.

Who can take part

The PREDICT-HD study is now fully recruited at NHNN. We are not currently looking for more volunteers for this study.
