Opportunities and requirements for participation may vary considerably from one trial or study to another. If you are interested in volunteering, our research staff will be happy to help you identify studies you may be eligible for. We are always looking for more participants, so please feel free to contact our research coordinator if you would like more information.

Currently Enrolling

The purpose of PROOF-HD is to find out if Pridopidine is a safe and effective drug and to find out the effect of Pridopidine on every day functioning and daily activities in people with early stage HD. Participants have a 50/50 chance of receiving study drug (Pridopidine) versus placebo. Participants must be at least 25 years old and have a diagnosis of Stage 1 or 2 HD.  Subjects must agree to participate in 8 in person visits, 6 phone calls, and 4 virtual visits over 86 weeks.  Visits include assessments such as neurological and physical exams, cognitive tests, motor assessments, blood collection, and more.
