      Hey everyone, hope you’re all having a great week so far!

      Check out Michael’s latest video here. In this episode, he discusses the potential of developing a combination therapy for SMA. This is a topic that researchers have been discussing for some time, and Michael goes into detail here. Hope you all enjoy watching this one!

      Do you have any questions about this subject?

      I’m skeptical of any muscle targeted treatments having any lasting effects because SMA is not a muscle disease, it’s a neurological disease. If it were a muscle disease there are things already available that help build muscle like steroids that should help, but they don’t.

      If they find a way to help regenerate motor neurons that would certainly be effective, but it doesn’t seem like there’s anything close on that front.

      I am hopeful always because that is my nature. But I don’t want anything that is painful or has too many dangerous side effects, if th that’s  the case I would rather just deal with SMA. But I am open minded. Thank you for sharing.
