PML brain infection with the drug Cellcept

This news has been circulating for a few months but thought I would post for all to see. Some neurologists are using Cellcept as off label treatment for MS. For those being offered Cellcept as an MS treatment you should be aware that there were 10 confirmed and 7 possible cases of PML with the use of this drug. This is the deadly brain infection that the 3 Tysabri users caught and died from. The drug company recently added a black box warning to the Cellcept package. So Ty. isn't looking so bad!!

WOW!
I cannot thank you enough, and please keep spreading the word! I have been on Cellcept for 2yrs now, and was not aware of this. I will share this with my neurologists @ my next visit.
Again, Many Thanks! :D
