Abstract

To evaluate the effect of SMN2 copy number on disease severity in spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), we stratified 45 adult SMA patients based on SMN2 copy number (3 vs. 4 copies). Patients with 3 copies had an earlier age of onset and lower spinal muscular atrophy functional rating scale (SMAFRS) scores and were more likely to be non-ambulatory. There was, however, no difference between the groups in quantitative muscle strength or pulmonary function testing. Functional scale may be a more discriminating outcome measure for SMA clinical trials.
