Acting now to bring about neonatal screening for spinal muscular atrophy
The European Alliance for Newborn Screening in Spinal Muscular Atrophy demands that by 2025, newborn screening programmes in all European countries include a test for spinal muscular atrophy for all newborn children.
Screen at birth, save lives
Identifying children living with SMA through newborn screening allows for treatment to be started on time, preventing motor neuron death and a life with severe disability or even death.
