Tonight our special guests are Dr. Samuel Frank - Associate Professor of Neurology and co-Director of Neurology Resident Education at Boston University and is involved with many HSG studies and trials, and Dr. David Stamler - Chief Medical Officer at Auspex Pharmaceuticals.  

Tonight we will be discussing First-HD, which is is a Phase III clinical research trial of an investigational drug called SD-809 Extended Release (ER) in persons who have a diagnosis of Huntington disease (HD).  First-HD will be enrolling participants across North America (United States and Canada) who have been diagnosed with HD and who have never taken tetrabenazine (Xenazine ®, Nitoman ®). Participants will be involved in this trial for approximately 4 months.

Stay tuned and we look forward to having an awesome show tonight!
