Welcome To Kaitlynn's Place

Kaitlynn was born September 29th, 2004. We have seen neurology specialists from St. Louis to New Orleans since she was born. Unfortunately, we still do not have a definitive diagnosis for Kaitlynn. The best guess her doctors have to offer is mitochondrial disease.

New Research In Treatment for Spinal Muscle Atrophy (SMA)

Science Translation Medicine has just published groundbreaking research on spinal muscle atrophy (SMA.)


SMA is a set of inherited muscle diseases that cause muscle to continuously degenerate and weaken. The disease requires extensive and ongoing medical care. The disease process usually ends with death. In fact, SMA is one of the most common genetic causes of death in childhood. Sadly, there is no known cure or effective treatment.

The research by University of Sheffield demonstrated a novel gene transfer system that has the promise of efficient therapeutic treatment for SMA patients. I will let you read the research process below, but the approach has the possibility of establishing gene therapy with the use of just a single injection. 

It is important to note that test was conducted using animals, but these findings undoubtedly put science that much closer to actual gene therapy treatments for SMA patients.

Its like you learn my mind! You seem to understand so much about
this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something.
I feel that you just can do with some % to force the message house a bit,
but other than that, this is wonderful blog. An excellent read.
I'll definitely be back.
