In the United States alone, 6 million individuals suffer from some form of a degenerative neurological condition. An estimated 1.5 million suffer from Parkinson’s Disease (PD), while 30,000 mdash; an estimated one in 10,000 mdash; suffer from Huntington’s Disease (HD). Moreover, an additional 150,000 individuals face at least a 50 percent risk of developing HD. With these numbers in mind, this week’s Disease Management Update looks at PD and HD and some new findings that may lead to better treatment of these near-fatal neurological diseases.
