What is SMA?
Spinal muscular atrophy is a heterogeneous group of inherited diseases that occur with the defeat / loss of motor neurons of the anterior horns of the spinal cord.
A genetic disease in which all types of inheritance are possible: autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, X-linked, associated with mutations in the SMN1 and SMN2 genes encoding a protein involved in the synthesis of the spliceosome

Classification of SMA types
Depending on the severity of symptoms, there are 3 main types of proximal SMA: SMU 1, SMU 2, SMU 3.
SMA I, werdnig-Hoffman disease
Age of manifestation of the disease: up to 6 months

The most unfavorable form of SMA. Children lack motor development, have difficulty breathing, difficulty sucking and swallowing, do not hold their head, do not sit on their own.
SMA II, Dubowitz disease
Age of manifestation of the disease: 6-18 months
Children with this form of spinal amyotrophy can eat and sit, but they never reach the ability to walk on their own. The prognosis in these cases depends on the degree of involvement of the respiratory muscles in the pathological process.
SMA III, Kugelberg-Velander disease
Age of manifestation of the disease: 6-18 months

The least dangerous form of childhood SMA. The patient is able to stand, but is very weak, with a tendency to disability (movement in a wheelchair).
In August 2019, Russia registered the drug nuzinersen ("Spinraza"), which is able to stop the progression of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), and in some cases, improve the condition of people with this disease. Before that, there was no registered drug for the treatment of SMA in the Russian Federation.
