    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.

    Hi all,
    PPMS since 2007. So I had my first infusion in Oct Nov of last year. My Dr. at UCSF wanted to use my B cell levels as the driver for second treatment. In late April they were at zero so we chose to delay for a few months. In May I had an annual MRI and no new or enhancing lesions!!!

    I’m going to hold off for now. If I have MS, it is not what is giving me trouble right now. It would not be worth even a small breast cancer risk to me.
