Unified Huntington’s Disease Rating Scale (UHDRS)

The Unified Huntington’s Disease Rating Scale (abbreviated as UHDRS) is a standardized test that researchers often use in clinical trials. The test measures motor control, cognitive symptoms, behavioral symptoms, independence, and a person’s ability to function in day-to-day life. The UHDRS allows researchers to determine how much of an impact a drug, supplement, or treatment is having on an individual’s HD.
