Thank you for your interest in HD clinical trials! 

Participation in the clinical research process is the single most important thing HD families can do to help new and more effective treatments for HD be developed.  It is only through the involvement of HD families that clinical trials that generate conclusive data about the effectiveness of potential cures and therapies will be completed so that regulatory agencies, like the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), can approve life-changing medicines for HD.   

HDSA maintains up-to-date information on all clinical trials, as well as important observational research, like Enroll-HD, that are currently taking place in the U.S. for HD families.  Please visit to learn more and to find a trial site in your area.
