Spinal Muscular Atrophy: Disease Mechanisms and Therapy provides the latest information on a condition that is characterized by motoneuron loss and muscle atrophy, and is the leading genetic cause of infant mortality. Since the identification of the gene responsible for SMA in 1995, there have been important advances in the basic understanding of disease mechanisms, and in therapeutic development. This book provides a comprehensive accounting of recent advances in basic and clinical research that covers SMA clinical features and standards of care, multifaceted aspects of SMN protein functions and SMA disease pathology, various animal models, and biomarkers, as well as current therapeutic development. This title is ideal for graduate students/postdocs and principal investigators who are already in the SMA field and need to keep updated on recent findings and approaches, and for those who are new to, or would like to join, the field. Likewise, users will find an excellent source of reading for biotech/pharma scientists, clinical researchers, and practitioners, regulators, and patients and their advocacy organizations. Furthermore, this book is a handy reference for researchers and clinicians who may want to apply the research strategies and therapeutic approaches in SMA to other rare diseases. Provides comprehensive, up-to-date reviews by leading investigators on diverse topics of SMA, including clinical features and patient care, SMN genetics and protein functions, animal models, disease pathology and mechanisms, biomarkers, current therapeutic development, and the role of non-profit organizations in therapeutic development Written to bridge multiple disciplines and promote better communications among basic scientists, clinical researchers, and health care providers on the latest developments in SMA Includes outstanding questions and perspectives for future investigations and key references for additional detailed study

Spinal Muscular Atrophy

"Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is one of many neuromuscular diseases affecting motor neurons and skeletal muscles. This disorder causes deterioration of the motor neurons (specifically the Anterior Horn Cells of the spinal cord). These motor neurons that control muscles are selectively destroyed resulting in varying degrees of atrophy, weakness and

Signs and symptoms are often difficult to interpret in infants, so a complete examination must always be conducted. An infant may present with only a few signs even when seriously ill. The younger the infant, the more likely it is that the illness is serious and will require hospitalization. In

Spinal Muscular Atrophy  A Patients Journey

Spinal Muscular Atrophy Background: Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a rare, autosomal recessive, progressive, neurodegenerative disorder due to a genetic defect in SMN1 which, codes for the SMN protein- vital for motor neuron function. Subsequently, this leads to loss of anterior horn cell function in the spinal cord which manifests

Characterization of Cellular Pathways in Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is an autosomal recessive genetic disease, and is the leading genetic cause of death in infants. SMA is a severe neuromuscular disease characterized by loss of spinal [alpha]-motor neurons, resulting in the paralysis of skeletal muscle. SMA is caused by deficiency of Survival Motor Neuron (

The Role of Muscle and Nerve in Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is the leading genetic cause of infant death, affecting approximately 1 in 10,000 live births worldwide. SMA is caused due to decrease in levels of the ubiquitous Survival Motor Neuron (SMN) protein. SMN in humans is encoded by two genes SMN1 and SMN2. SMA is an autosomal recessive
