I can see where you're coming from on this one Harry, but a lot of people seem to really do well on Tysabri.
You or I might not feel that the crabs do anything useful and/or maybe we feel that Tysabri doesn't do anything useful, but it is and should be available as an option for intelligent people and it's not up to any of the rest of us to question the wisdom of someone who chooses to take it and it's not up to us to attempt to overstate the dangers in taking it until the facts are all in.
I don't know for sure but it seems that, by a large degree, more Tysabri infusions have been done in the USA and Canada. With that in mind, what is responsible for the two confirmed PML cases being in the European union? Were both cases in the same area of Europe? Were they in the same country? Clinic?
Before jumping to ANY conclusions or laying ANY blame there are a lot of very important things which need to be answered, and the situation starts suspiciously because it seems to defy the odds.
Boston Globe article wrote:The US label says one in 1,000 patients could potentially contract the disease. With it in mind that those in the US on Tysabri accepted a 1/1000 risk, everyone should freak out about what so far seems to have shown to be a 1/15,000 risk, and, realistically, a 0% risk among US patients so far?
I don't and never have felt that Tysabri is the greatest thing in the world. It's not. Tysabri is nothing more than a higher degree of immune suppression and immune suppression is a flawed and dangerous mode of operation against autoimmunity. Unfortunately, at this point suppression is the only medically accepted mode and, with that in mind, Tysabri is the most advantageous "legitimate" treatment and so far hasn't been proven to be more dangerous than the crabs.
