‘HD Research borders: from initial findings to experimental results’.
This is the title of the Conference which will be held in Rome on the next December 3, 2016.
It is the annual conference promoted by our partner organization LIRH (Italian League for Research on Huntington and related diseases), with the aim of updating the Italian HD community on what is going on in the research world, with a particular focus on experimental drug trials.
A complete overview of all the HD clinical trials will be given; the preliminary results on the ‘pridopidine’ compound will be illustrated; an update on the gene therapy trial will be presented.
Mr Mohammed Al-Hajri – President of the Oman HD Association- has been invited as a speaker to share the Oman Huntington Association experience with the Italian families. This is a great opportunity to get updated information on research to be shared with the Omani families, once Mr Al-Hajri will be back in Muscat.
