Accelerating treatments that

make a difference

for Huntington's disease

Founded in 1993, Huntington Study Group (HSG) is an organization of compassionate professionals dedicated to accelerating treatments that make a difference and to improving the quality of life and outcomes for those impacted by Huntington’s disease (HD) through research, education, and collaboration. We build HD-focused teams of clinical researchers, medical professionals, and sponsors and, together, conduct compliant and pivotal clinical research and trials, share knowledge, and develop innovative treatments for Huntington’s disease.

Advancing HD Clinical Research

The Huntington Study Group has led 40+ clinical trials and studies, including trials that resulted in the first three and only FDA-approved drugs for the treatment of HD chorea (tetrabenazine, deutetrabenazine, and valbenazine). In addition, HSG developed the Unified Huntington’s Disease Rating Scale (UHDRS®), an invaluable research tool that provides a uniform assessment of the clinical features and the course of HD. HSG currently provides our expertise and knowledge to Enroll-HD, the world’s largest HD observational study.
