It is estimated that approximately 1 in 6,000 to 1 in 10,000 infants are born annually worldwide with SMA. SMA is often compared to polio because the same spinal cord cells are attacked in each disease. Over time, patients afflicted by this disease continue to lose muscle control and strength, leading to progressive inability to walk, stand, sit up and breathe.
