SMA Quick Facts
- 1 in every 40 people, or nearly 10 million Americans, UNKNOWINGLY carries the gene responsible for SMA.  Few have any known family history.
- SMA is a genetic recessive disease that kills more babies than ANY other inherited disease.  It is the number one genetic killer of children under the age of two.
- 50% of SMA Type I babies don't live to see their 1st birthday.
- 90% of SMA Type I babies don't live to see their 2nd birthday.
- There are four types of SMA Type I, II, III, and IV with type I being the most severe.
-Because scientists know so much about SMA, it is considered a "model" disease with direct impact on research into many other diseases potentially benefiting millions of people.
- There are currently many drugs and therapies being tested as treatments and/or cures.  A very promising Gene Therapy trial is hoped to be in Human Clinical Trial in 2013.  THAT'S THIS YEAR!!
