The University awarded a contract for Spinraza.
Spinraza is indicated for the treatment of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) in pediatric and adult patients. SMA is a rare neuromuscular disease and leading genetic cause of infant death or loss of motor function.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) If the University of Illinois Hospital (UIH) does not have this therapy available to our neurologists, they will need to refer patients to other hospitals offering this therapy, resulting in a loss of revenue to UIH.
