    In this episode of the Morale Monologue, I’m going to try to clear up some confusion that’s floating around the Internet regarding the differences between an IV administered treatment and an IT administered treatment. Those of us that are receiving our Spinraza treatments are receiving them through what is known as an IT, or intrathecal type of delivery system. When AveXis gets their drug, ZOLGENSMA, passed by the FDA, to become the second FDA approved treatment for those of us who suffer from SMA, they will be using an IV administered treatment. The questions that are being asked are what are the differences between these two types of delivery systems, and why these delivery methods were chosen by the pharmaceutical companies for those of us that will be receiving them.
