Clinical Trial Results Suggest Long-Term Treatment Benefit of,Tetrabenazine for Chorea Associated with Huntington's Disease

the Total Maximal Chorea Score were statistically significantly reduced, as compared to baseline in the open-label study, within subjects with significant benefits seen throughout the study's duration. The most commonly observed adverse events were sleepiness, depressed mood, anxiety, chorea, insomnia, and an inner feeling of restlessness (akathisia). Serious adverse events judged by study investigators to be possibly or probably related to tetrabenazine use included: fall (two patients), pneumonia (two patients), increased depression, akathisia, agitation and trouble swallowing (dysphagia). Nine patients withdrew from the study due to adverse events.

About Huntington's Disease

Huntington's disease (HD) is an inherited degenerative brain disorder that affects 1 in 10,000 Americans and causes involuntary movements (chorea) and deterioration in the ability to think, walk, talk and reason. HD is hereditary, with each child of an affected parent having a 50% chance of inheriting the gene that causes HD. The disease does not skip generations, and everyone who carries the gene will develop the disease. Most people with HD develop the illness between the ages of 30 and 45. At this time, there is no way to stop, slow or reverse the course of HD, and current treatments are aimed at alleviating the troublesome symptoms of the disease.
