CYTOKINETICS AND CURE SMA RENEW & EXPAND PARTNERSHIP TO ADVANCE EDUCATION & AWARENESS OF SMA

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill. and SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cure SMA and Cytokinetics today announced an expanded partnership to increase education, awareness and fundraising for spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).  As a National Platinum Partner for 2018, Cytokinetics will lend support to several of Cure SMA’s initiatives at both the local and national level to advance understanding of, and research toward potential treatments for SMA, a genetic disease that robs people of physical strength and takes away their ability to walk, eat or breathe.

“We have enjoyed a longstanding relationship with Cure SMA and are pleased to expand our involvements, particularly at a time when more attention and research are focused on the SMA community,” said Robert I. Blum, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cytokinetics. “We remain committed to advancing therapies for adolescents and adults with types II, III and IV SMA, a population in need of new therapies to address impaired muscle function and weakness despite the promise of gene-directed therapies.”
