    The HD View Ask Dr. Goodman Show

    in Health

    What is Laqunimod?  Laquinimod is an experimental drug from TEVA Pharmaceuticals that has already been tested in previous clinical trials in several diseases including Multiple Sclerosis (MS).  This drug is thought to affect (or modulate) immune activity by shifting an injurious inflammatory situation to one that is more protective and anti-inflammatory. There is also evidence from various clinical trials that laquinimod may delay progression of disability in MS, and that it reduces brain atrophy as measured by MRI brain scans.  By reducing brain atrophy, this drug may have neuroprotective effects [Varrin-Doyer 2014]. This drug can trigger  protective neuron factors like BDNF (as measured in blood of MS clinical trial participants) that supports the health of neurons.  


    We will be talking about LEGATO-HD clinical research trial that will test the safety of Laquinimod.

    The HD View Ask Dr. Goodman Show

    in Science

    ON HELP4HD RADIO Tuesday, March 3, 3:30 pm PST/6:30 pm EST


    Dr. Goodman writes about the Pride-HD (Pridopidine) study in her recent article...


    "PRIDE-HD: Why We Should Bother"


    Recruitment is not going well for PRIDE-HD, an important clinical trial now enrolling for Huntington's disease (HD). Why is this?  Some think "why bother", particularly when testing a drug they may perceive as a failure in earlier trials. For some others, the trials may seem to too hard, too long, or not permit other drugs they are taking.  Still others are waiting for the gene therapy magic bullet they believe is just around the corner...


    Help4HD says, "Because we don't know until we try."


    Tune in to the show and let's talk about it!
