Cure SMA Unveils Initiatives to Improve Clinical Trial Accessibility


Cure SMA introduces tools aiding in SMA clinical trial navigation and participation empowerment.

Cure SMA is pleased to announce the release of new resources to support our community’s ability to navigate the evolving landscape of SMA clinical trials. These resources are intended to build knowledge in clinical trial procedures and preparation, to enhance awareness regarding actively recruiting clinical trials and sites, and to empower our community in their decision-making. 

  • SMA Registry and Clinical Trial Finder: Explore SMA clinical trials with our easy-to-use search widget. Filter by SMA type, location, trial phase, treatment status, and more to find trials that fit individual needs and preferences.
  • Screening Visit Checklist: Prepare for the screening visit with a thorough checklist that organizes medical history and suggests questions to ask the research team.
  • Decoding Informed Consent: Understanding informed consent is crucial! Our handout will guide adults living with SMA and caregivers through the key sections of the informed consent form, ensuring they’re confident in their decision to participate in a clinical trial.
  • Travel Planners (Air and Ground): Manage travel details with ease! Our itineraries will help travel planning and are tailored to the unique needs of the SMA community.
