    New MS medication: Ocrevus by Genentech

    did I miss discussion about this? Do I remember reading there was some false report? Has anyone any information or experience?

    New IV drug, one of the first designed to help with PPMS progression, but also approved for use with RRMS.

    I'm on track to have my first infusion in a couple weeks. Just had the screening blood draws and ECG yesterday. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Sister in law has started the treatment, so far no improvement. Its early, but at least she hasn't had any regressions. That in itself would be a win for her.
