Good news!

I haven't had any futher progression of my MS, thanks to the kick arse drug Tysabri. Thank you Biogen Idec! I hope your rewards are as fruitful as they are reported! But good news! I may be off injectable/infusion drugs atound 4th quarter of this year. Biogen's new drug, which at this time is named BG-12, is a pill form that may be able to provide results similar to tysabri, but without the PML risk! Oh yea! No needles, No PML risk. I'm sold. I hope it works out. As an added bonus he mentioned that the drug has been used for around two decades in Europe for a psoriasis drug, I believe. That means it has effectively been through the rigors of drug testing. And when I say I'm fearful of new drugs that haven't been tested thoroughly, I mean it. Tysabri is fairly scary with the PML risk, but is yielding impressive results, so I don't want to stop it unless the next drug has undergone the usual battery of drug trials and time. It's the best time to have Multiple Sclerosis in the history of Earth!
