Knowing the signs of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) can speed up time to diagnosis, which can ultimately improve outcomes.
The diagnosis of neuromuscular disorders, including SMA, in young children is often delayed, preventing patients from receiving the management and services they require.2
With treatment now available for SMA, its relative effectiveness may depend on being able to identify patients early enough to initiate treatment before irreversible neuronal loss occurs.1,3
A simple genetic test can confirm the diagnosis of SMA so treatment can be initiated earlier to improve outcomes.1
