There are a few key people, places, and teams that will help you get started, and provide ongoing support throughout your SPINRAZA journey.
First, you’ll need to make an appointment with a healthcare provider (HCP) who can
prescribe SPINRAZA. Then, you can discuss the benefits and risks of treatment and
address any concerns you might have. Together, you can determine whether or not
SPINRAZA might be right for you. If you decide that it is, you and your HCP can fill out a Start Form, and
your HCP will submit it to Biogen to initiate your enrollment in SMA360° support services.*
*SMA360° patient services from Biogen are available only to those who have been prescribed
SPINRAZA. SMA360° is intended for US residents only.
You will receive your treatment at a treatment center with qualified physicians
experienced in administering SPINRAZA. Your treatment center will schedule your
appointments and ensure everything is in place on the day(s) of your treatment.
Before you start treatment with SPINRAZA and before each dose, your doctor
will order blood and urine testing to monitor for the potential risks of bleeding
complications or kidney damage. On the day of your treatment, the
administrative staff will complete your check-in. Then the clinical staff will
prepare you for treatment, and an HCP will administer your first dose of
SPINRAZA. After, the administrative staff will check you out and schedule your
next appointment. Your SMA360° team will follow up with you after each dose.
