Genetic Therapy Restores Motor Neurons in SMA Model

Researchers from The Jackson Laboratory in Maine, in collaboration with Isis Pharmaceuticals, tested a novel therapeutic candidate (antisense oligonucleotides) in genetically engineered mice with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), observing it could restore some functionality of motor neurons. The study entitled “Systemic, postsymptomatic antisense oligonucleotide rescues motor…
