Why R most Tysabri-PML cases in europe?

I'm confused - according to that data...

<shortened url>

... 20,200 people in the US are on Tysabri and 16,900 outside US.

BUT: There are until now 5 PML cases (Tysabri mono therapy)

1 in the US
4 in Europe (out of the 4 there are 3 !! Germans)

What is happening? Better screening for PML risk candidates in the US? Higher JC virus prevalence in europe?

Any comments?

Thank you,
Sandrine

Introduction to Inclined Bed Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis

I am 53 years young, Happily Married for 29 years with two grown up sons.

I have been researching neurological conditions for 16 years now, following a simple discovery in circulation, which began trying to understand how trees lift water to their leaves without a pump, Little did I know at this time that questioning some erroneous science literature would have such far reaching implications for so many people.

Tysabri diary

Had my second infusion on sunday morning. After the first one I was wiped out, muscle and joint pain that had gone away came back with a vegenace. The second one has been easier -and I drove a roundtrip of 6 hours on monday, which I haven't done since my last relapse in Nov so perhaps things are looking up.

It’s about a MS patient who underwent a stem cell transplant and seems to have had very good results. Phase I trial and all that, but still interesting…
