Pin for a Cure - On the Brink of Curing Spinal Muscular Atrophy

SMA linked to chromosome 5. Spinal muscular atrophy types 1 through 4 all result from a single known cause — a deficiency of a protein called SMN, for "survival of motor neuron." Deficiency of SMN protein occurs when a mutation (flaw) is present in both copies of the SMN1 gene — one on each chromosome 5.

Motor neuron disease  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motor_neuron_disease  The motor neuron diseases (MND) are a group of neurological disorders that selectively affect motor neurons, the cells that control voluntary muscle activity including speaking, walking, swallowing, and general movement of the body. They are generally progressive in nature, and cause increasingly debilitating disability and, eventually, death.

According to a recent study, transdermal magnesium therapy for Motor Neurone Disease proved to be very effective for patients.
