About SMA How You Can Help In the Press Home

You can make a difference

Since 2005, researchers have made dramatic breakthroughs in understanding the genetic causes of spinal muscular atrophy, leading to the development of new therapies that may extend the life, and potentially cure SMA patients. In 2002 the NIH selected SMA as a model translational research program from among 600 neurological diseases because they believe SMA is the neurological disorder closest to a cure.

Your support can make a major difference in hastening the research needed to eradicate this debilitating and life threatening disease.
