Clinical Care And Other SMA-Related Research
Clinical researchers and patient representatives from Europe and the US started work in February 2016 reviewing research and practice. You can now read their recommendations as to what assessments and interventions families should expect to find in any neuromuscular centre.
Clinical practice is constantly being reviewed and developed. Dr Alex Murphy, our Clinical Care Research Correspondent, reviews areas of care and practice.
Our Research Correspondents report on the available, but limited, research on rarer forms of SMA.
SMA-related research not only takes place in the laboratory and clinic, but is also the focus of some social scientists and ethicists.
