When the news about the preliminary study results from the PROOF-HD study came the last week of April 2023, many people were disappointed. Some sources presented it as a solely negative outcome and many expressed great disappointment. In our view, the results are much more mixed and not at all only negative. Some of the participants in the study seem to have a clear benefit from the drug. Knowledge is power The European Huntington Association, in collaboration with Prilenia, organized a webinar to learn more about the PROOF-HD mixed results. Dr Michael Hayden (founder and CEO of Prilenia), Dr Ralf Reilman (Principal Investigator for PROOF-HD in Europe) and Dr. Andrew Feigin (Chair at The Huntington Study Group) will explain the results and indicate further steps.
