Real-world data reveal increased depression and suicidality in patients with Huntington’s disease

Rates of depression and suicidality are increased in patients with manifest Huntington’s disease (HD), according to real-world data from a global registry.

“High rates of depression have been reported in those with HD,” the researchers wrote. “However, there is a paucity of real-world data to assess psychiatric burden (e.g. depression and suicidality) in relation to chorea in HD.”
