The predictive testing (PST) model for late-onset neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington's disease (HD), a rare disorder with a prevalence of ~1-7 in 100,000 individuals of European ancestry (Ramos et al., 2015), has been implemented and adapted for other late-onset diseases around the world (Hawkins, Ho, & Hayden, 2011), namely, Machado-Joseph disease (MJD) and Familial Amyloidotic
Polyneuropathy (FAP), two Portuguese monogenic, autosomal and dominant diseases (Sequeiros et al., 2006), with a severe neurodegenerative evolution and no effective cure.
