Directory of Diseases Benefiting from SMA Research
Researchers around the world are working side-by-side with Fight SMA, trying to find a treatment or a cure for the killer disease spinal muscular atrophy. As they make progress unlocking a cure for SMA, their work is also making strides toward understanding and possibly curing a number of other rare conditions.
Below is a directory of those diseases and disorders receiving a “collateral benefit” from spinal muscular atrophy research, and links to sites where more information can be found about them. If you have a website that provides information about any of these diseases, please contact us. If the site meets our criteria, we will include it in our directory. If we do include your link, we ask that you provide a link back to Fight SMA or FighterMom in return.
