    Tysabri

    Sorry if this is addressed somewhere I didn’t find. Last I saw a neurologist he wasn’t prescribing it because of risk of death. My pain/spine doctor said they’ve now determined who’s at risk for PML (or whatever is the deadly thing) so it could be pretty reliably safe if you’re not in that group. Does anyone know if this is true and where I could find such research? And/or a doctor in central NJ who’s using it?

    Hello Random, Tysabri is being prescribed again by doctors trained and approved to do so. As you mentioned, it had been taken off the market. Hope you have found a doctor in your area that is up to speed.

    I spoke to my doctor who told me that on top of all the other limitations, they won't approve use in anyone with any lasting progression, only relapsing-remitting with full interim recovery.
