Enroll -HD: A Prospective Registry Study in a Global Huntington’s Disease Cohort

Author Therese Crutcher-Marin

At this time, in the Huntington’s disease arena around the world, people are needed to participate in the exciting clinical trials being conducted.  Without people, very brave people, we cannot move forward in finding a cure for the cruelest disease on the planet; Huntington’s disease (HD).

Enroll-HD is a longitudinal, observational, multinational study that will integrate two existing Huntington’s Disease (HD) registries, REGISTRY in Europe and COHORT in North America and Australia, while also expanding to include sites in Latin America and Asia. With no end date and annual assessments, the goal of Enroll-HD is to build a large and rich database of longitudinal clinical information and biospecimens. This database will serve as a basis for future studies aimed at developing tools and biomarkers for progression and prognosis, identifying clinically relevant phenotypic characteristics, and establishing clearly defined endpoints for interventional studies.  To learn more about Enroll-HD, go to:  https://www.enroll-hd.org/

Enroll-HD is a “platform”

The idea is that this one study will make all other HD research easier, speeding up the process of developing new drugs and other treatments that really work. Rather than being restricted to a select group of researchers, it will be a resource for all HD science, making it faster and more efficient for other researchers to conduct their projects. This is why it’s called a platform, it supports other work.
