SMA Research:

While the approved therapies for SMA are limited at this time, there are many medications currently being studied with the hope that they may also become treatment options. CHOP has long been a site for research studies and clinical trials, continually seeking to find the next breakthrough in the treatment of SMA. In addition to interventional trials, we are a site for natural history studies that allow us to learn more about the disorder and how treatment is altering its natural history.
