Clinical Care and Other SMA-Related Research
In February 2016, clinical researchers and patient representatives from Europe and the US started work reviewing research and practice. You can read the outcomes which were published in November 2017 and a summary of a November 2018 workshop discussing them.
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.
