Since the discovery of the disease gene, SMN1, there has been considerable progress in the understanding of molecular genetics of SMA. Comprehensive SMA genetic testing, comprising qualitative PCR-RFLP, SMN gene dosage analysis, and linkage analysis, in combination with appropriate genetic counseling and risk assessment, currently offers the most complete evaluation of SMA patients and their families. In addition, new technologies, such as monosomal analysis techniques, may be widely available in the near future. Understanding of molecular genetics will also facilitate the development of new therapy that may cure SMA in the future.
