Current Treatment Options in Neurology-SMA Therapeutics.    

Abstract
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In this review, we discuss the clinical and genetic features of 5q spinal muscular atrophy and highlight approved and upcoming therapies.
RECENT FINDINGS: We emphasize that multidisciplinary care has been a key component of the improved quality and length of life seen in these individuals in the past decade. We discuss the evidence leading to the approval of nusinersen and the evidence leading to the anticipated approval of onasemnogene abeparvovec-xioi. Additional clinical therapies that are on the horizon are discussed and the importance of continued multidisciplinary care even after treatment is emphasized. The pursuit of therapies for spinal muscular atrophy is becoming a success story and continued development of biomarkers will allow for more informed therapeutic decision making and eventual cost-effective utilization of available therapies.
