    The HD View Ask Dr. Goodman Show

    in Health

    Tuesday, December 2, 2014 - 3:30 pm PST/6:30 pm EST

    Tonight we will be discussing Dr. Goodman's latest article "2014: A Yin-Yang year for HD".

    She writes: "Particularly during this past year, living with Huntington's disease (HD) has been full of its ups and downs. First there was the hope in ongoing clinical trials of both coenzyme-Q-10 and creatine. Then there was sadness and fear that came with their failures.  And now hope is springing again for new drugs coming to clinical trials now that will take a few years to complete.  No doubt this Yin-Yang cycle will continue for HD, just as it does for other diseases."

    "However, there may be reason to believe in the chance of greater success this next time around."
