Genetic diseases are diseases that are passed on from parents to their offspring. An example of a genetic disease which can be inherited is Huntington Disease. "Huntington Disease is an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disorder with midlife onset characterised by psychiatric, cognitive and motor symptoms"(G. Vonsattel and DiFiglia, 1998). The statistics for HD blah blah blah Like all genetic diseases, huntington 's disease has a specific inheritance pattern. Huntington disease is an autosomal
Huntington’s Disease Huntington’s is named after George Huntington who was the first person to describe the disease in 1872. However it wasn’t until 1993 that the gene that causes Huntington’s was discovered. Huntington’s is an inherited progressive disease that affects the brain and causes severe cognitive decline. The result is involuntary movements, emotional disturbance, damaged perception and memory as well as overall lowered though processing ability. We know that Huntington’s is a genetic
Genetics in Huntington’s disease Imagine caring for someone with constant jerky movements, and every word he or she attempted to say came out with a slur. Something as simple as speaking is an everyday struggle for an individual with Huntington’s disease. This is just a brief description of obstacles a person may experience with Huntington’s disease. Huntington’s disease is a genetic neurodegenerative disease that causes defects in a person’s cognitive thinking, movement, and physiological stability
I am interesting to learn more about the nerves system as a result for this assignment I have done my researcher about Huntington diseases. Huntington is a genetic disease that effect the brain and nervous system that result to insanity such as; uncontrolled movement emotional problem, and the ability of thinking (1998-. Huntington disease). The common type of Huntington disease shows up in the age of 30-40 years old person. The common and initial symptom may be involving irritability, the involuntary
Huntington's Disease-Mayo Clinic Huntington's disease is an inherited disease that causes the progressive breakdown (degeneration) of nerve cells in the brain. Huntington's disease has a broad impact on a person's functional abilities and usually results in movement, thinking (cognitive) and psychiatric disorders. Medications are available to help manage the symptoms of Huntington's disease, but treatments can't prevent the physical, mental and behavioral decline associated with the condition.
is the neural disease knowns as Huntington’s Disease. The topic of Huntington’s Disease will be discussed about to get a much broader knowledge on the neural disease consist of ten pages. The first page will discuss the background and the history of Huntington’s Disease. What year was the neural disease founded and whom first discovered. The second page will discuss the biochemical basis of Huntington’s Disease and how it’s developed and what type of mutation happens for the disease to become onset
Huntington 's Chorea or Huntington 's Disease is a rare progressive genetic disorder which afflicts roughly 7 out of every 100,000 people in North America (Rawlins, 2016, pp. 144–153). The disease manifests primarily in tissues of the brain, and affects the shutdown of many primary functions including speech, movement, and cognitive abilities. With a strong genetic component, there is a 50% chance of just one parent passing the gene linked with Huntington 's Disease along to offspring; additionally
Huntington Disease is a rare inherited Neurological illness. This illness is passed down from generation, but may not show up until you are an adult and is may no never show up. It often appears in more than one member if it occurs in a family. This a Genetic Condition. The change in the genetic information that is passed down is what causes Huntington's Disease. This illness causes involuntary movements, severe emotional disturbance. Huntington causes parts of the brain to break down and lose some
Huntington disease is known to be an inherited disease which is caused by a gene mutation called HTT. A child of a parent with Huntington disease carrier a chance of 50% of having inherited the disease. Huntington disease Symptoms usually begin from early 30’s to 50’s. These symptoms are loss cognition, uncontrolled movements and behavior changes. Since there is no cure for this disease yet many approaches such as Preimplantation and prenatal tests have been made to manage this fatal disease.
thousand people of European ancestry are affected by Huntington Disease. People of Japanese, Chinese, and Asian descendant populations appear to have a less common rate of Huntington Disease(1). Huntington Disease is a progressive brain disorder which causes uncontrolled movements, loss of thinking ability, and emotional problems. There are two types of Huntington Disease, Adult-onset and Juvenile. Adult-onset is the most common form of Huntington Disease and those diagnosed live about fifteen to twenty
