There is actually no treatment for the condition of the disease once the symptoms start to appear on the patient's body. The patient will continue to experience mental and physical disablilties for life which makes it even more worse. The various types of medicines which are used will be adminstered but will not reverse the effects of the disease and the degeneration of the nerve cells. Drugs such as Tetrabenazine (Xenazine), tranquillizers like (clonazepam) and anti-psychotic drugs are used to treat the symptoms of the disease.

Hope this helps.

As of now, there is no cure for Huntington's disease, but there is medication to bring partial relief of pain to the effected person. The hope of the future is that one day scientists will be able to correct the abnormal part of DNA before the child is born, so that they may be able to live a normal life

It is a genetic disease so, it is passed from parent to offspring. The gene is autosomal dominant so, you only need to receive one copy of the mutated gene.

It is hereditary, meaning that if you get the gene from a parent, you have Huntington's disease. Also, if your 4th chromosome is wrong, you can get Huntington's disease.
