Voxel-based morphometry in individual patients: a pilot study in early Huntington disease
Background and Purpose: Voxel-based morphometry (VBM) has proved a powerful method to detect subtle changes of gray matter (GM) at the group level but the role of VBM for the detection of GM changes in single subjects, especially in those with suspected neurodegenerative disorder, remains uncertain. Here, we performed single subject analyses in 22 patients […]
A pilot study using nabilone for symptomatic treatment in Huntington’s disease
Pilot study of nabilone in Huntington’s disease (HD). Double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over study of nabilone versus placebo. Primary outcome, Unified Huntington’s Disease Rating Scale (UHDRS) total motor score. Secondary measures: UHDRS subsections for chorea, cognition and behavior, and neuropsychiatric inventory (NPI). 44 randomized patients received either nabilone (1 or 2 mg) followed by placebo (n = […]
Randomized controlled trial of atomoxetine for cognitive dysfunction in early Huntington disease
Background: Cognitive symptoms are associated with functional disability in Huntington disease; yet, few controlled trials have examined cognitive treatments that could improve patient independence and quality of life. Atomoxetine is a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor approved for treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.; Methods: Twenty participants with mild Huntington disease who complained of inattention were randomized to receive […]
A randomized, placebo-controlled trial of latrepirdine in Huntington disease
Objectives: To evaluate the safety and tolerability of latrepirdine in Huntington disease (HD) and explore its effects on cognition, behavior, and motor symptoms.; Design: Double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial.; Setting: Multicenter outpatient trial.; Participants: Ninety-one participants with mild to moderate HD enrolled at 17 US and UK centers from July 18, 2007, through July 16, 2008.; […]
One-year safety and tolerability profile of pridopidine in patients with Huntington disease
Objective: To assess the 1-year safety profile of the dopaminergic stabilizer pridopidine in patients with Huntington disease. Methods: Patients received pridopidine 45 mg/day for 4 weeks then pridopidine 90 mg/day for 22 weeks in this 6-month open-label extension (OLE) of the 6-month MermaiHD randomized controlled trial (RCT). Any adverse events (AEs) were recorded. Patients were […]
