Huntington's sufferers have reason to cheer: sufferings might have an end!!!

If latest research is to be believed neural transplants could be used to provide relief to Huntington's sufferers. This piece of good news for a number of people came from a group of French scientists who argued that neuronal transplants can provide improvement and a period of stability in Huntington's disease sufferers. //

Huntingdon’s disease is a bad thing to happen to anyone. It is a progressive and degenerative neurological disease, affecting both the physical and cognitive functions. The disease is hereditary and there is no cure.

A follow up data on five patients assessed over a period of six years was presented by the scientists. All had undergone neural grafting, where striatal neurons lost to Huntington's disease are substituted with striatal neuroblasts and neural precursors obtained from embryos after elective abortion.

In the words of the authors, 'The future therapeutic strategy against the disease probably relies on a combination of principles, neuroprotection, and neuronal replacement. Neuro-protection could stop the disease, but only a graft can restore lost function.'
