Early Prediction of Huntingtons Disease is Possible by Subtle Signs

US researchers have shown that subtle signs may enable early prediction of Huntingtons disease, an incurable genetic disorder that affects movement , thinking, and some aspects of personality. Dr. Jane S. Paulsen of the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine in...
