Here is My Question:
I was reading a short article in Neurology Today about a possible "passive vaccine" for PML. Could this allow people who have had to stop Tysabri due to a positive JCV? Tysabri was the best drug for me, but my JCV level kept going up to a point that my neurology team said no more.
You are correct. This is a very exciting area of researcher that may, if validated, allow us to develop better techniques for both identifying a persons risk of developing PML and preventing PML in the future
