Q-Suite Motor Assessment Tool Promising for Evaluating Huntington’s Disease Therapies in Children

October 22, 2019 - Amsterdam, NL – In clinical trials of adults with Huntington's disease (HD) the Q-Suite Motor Assessment Tool (Q-Motor) has proven to be helpful to detect and quantitate subtle motor abnormalities. With the anticipated arrival of preventive gene therapies that will most likely be administered to young children known to be carriers of the HD mutation, it is crucial to have a means to evaluate motor abilities in children that is sensitive to the child's stage of development. Promising results of a feasibility study published in the Journal of Huntington's Disease, indicate that Q-Motor can address this need.
