LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Huntington's Disease affects around 1 in every 10,000 Americans and another 200,000 are at risk of developing it.

It's a fatal genetic brain disorder that slowly robs patients of their ability to walk, talk and reason.

There isn't a cure for the disease, but two clinical trials are taking place at UofL to find a new treatment.

Dr. Kathrin LaFaver, a neurologist at UofL has more in the video player above.
