Here is My Question:
What would be the best MS therapy following treatments for cancer?
Choice of DMT is driven not only by prior chemotherapy received, but a history of your disease course (ie, how aggressive the disease has been).
The bigger question is when to initiate therapy after receiving chemotherapy for cancer. Many chemo therapies will indirectly treat MS, and caution is needed to avoid premature reintroduction of DMT when chemo therapy is still active in suppressing the immune system. Bottom line, the decision of when and with what to treat is a case by case decision.
