Genetic spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a disease caused by a deficiency of the SMN-1 gene in the body. This weakens the chest muscles and makes it difficult to breathe. The disease mainly affects young children and the patient dies as a result. The disease is endemic in Britain, where about 60 babies are born with the disease each year.

What is the cost of injection of this disease?
Many babies in Britain are affected by the disease. But, there is no cure for it. This injection is called zolgenesma. In Britain, the injection is ordered from the United States, Germany and Japan. This injection is given only once to a patient with this disease. This injection is so expensive that Zolgenesma is one of the three gene therapies that the therapy is allowed to experiment with in Europe.
