FightSMA Announces Passage of National Pediatric Research Network Act by U.S. House of Representatives
Date:11/13/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 13, 2013

National legislation to advance spinal muscular atrophy research took a giant leap forward on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013 with the passage by the U.S. House of Representatives of the National Pediatric Research Network Act (NPRNA).

"We are absolutely thrilled that the NPRNA has cleared this significant hurdle," said Martha Slay, a founder of FightSMA. "We had much help from many, many families across the country, as well as the early and continuing support of Congressman Eric Cantor."

"Our special thanks go out to Rep. Fred Upton, (R-MI), Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee; Rep. Lois Capps (D-CA); and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA)."

"This bill will increase coordination and improve pediatric research – especially research of rare and complex diseases – while developing new treatments to fight them," said Congresswoman Capps. "Children have unique health care experiences, treatment needs, and research challenges; and while public and private research has come a long way on pediatric diseases over the years, we know that we are still far behind on important diagnostics, cures, and treatments for far too many ailing children.
