What is spinraza and how it works?
Spinraza (nusinersen) has been approved by the FDA and is now available for treatment of patients with SMA due to SMN1 mutations.

Patients who meet the following criteria may be eligible for treatment with Spinraza:
Patients who have genetically confirmed SMA and meet the medical criteria for treatment.
Patients who are registered and receiving care with a ColumbiaDoctors provider.
Patients who are able to follow-up with their ColumbiaDoctors provider after treatment.
Patients who can be evaluated by their ColumbiaDoctors provider, including physicians and nurse practioners, six months after receiving their Spinraza treatment.
Babies Better Protected From COVID if Mother Vaccinated During Pregnancy!
In a first of its kind study, researchers found women who received two mRNA COVID vaccine doses during pregnancy were 61% less likely to have a baby hospitalized for COVID-19 during the first 6 months of life. In addition, two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna COVID vaccine later in a pregnancy were linked to an even higher level of protection, 80%, compared with 32% when given before 20 weeks' gestation. This finding suggests a greater transfer of maternal antibodies closer to birth, but more research is needed, cautioned senior study author Manish Patel, MD, during a Tuesday media telebriefing held by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Unanswered questions include how the babies got infected or if there is any protection afforded to babies for women vaccinated before pregnancy.
