A ground breaking drug with the clinically proven effect has been registered in the European Union. The medicine is free to use to cure any type and stage of Spinal Muscular Atrophy. This remedy was developed by the Ionis Pharmaceuticals and has been being used since 2016 in the USA. 

Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a group of congenital diseases accompanied by damaged neurons of the anterior horns of the spinal cord. These neurons are responsible for performing voluntary movements by reducing the skeletal musculature. By the way, sensory and mental disorders are not peculiar for the illness. 

Treatment with the new medication can be started at any age. Tests show high enough efficiency of this drug in patients who received their first injection at the age of:

  • 8-42 days old
  • Before 6 months
  • From 1 year old to 15 years old

The volume and nature of voluntary movements in the main and control groups were assessed during the testing.

It turned out that 40% of patients who received treatment with the drug achieved notable successes regarding such criteria:

  • Keeping the head up
  • The ability to sit
  • Ability to stand
  • Body turns
  • Legs movements in a lying position
  • Walking

These movements remained impossible for the control group patients who received the placebo. 

The medication for Spinal Muscular Treatment is injected into the liquor which is a liquid surrounding the spinal cord. It acts by increasing the level of SMN protein, which is accompanied by an improvement in the function of the motor neurons synapses.
