Other Neuroprotective Compounds

Scientists are currently investigating various compounds that are known to have neuroprotective effects. These compounds exert their effects through various mechanisms, often through a combination of the mechanisms discussed above. While most of these compounds are not currently being investigated as treatments for HD specifically, they are believed to have beneficial effects on people with various neurological diseases such as stroke, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, etc. Many neurological diseases seem to have similar disease mechanisms, thus giving rise to the possibility that these compounds might eventually be potential HD treatments as well.
