A board to discuss the newly-released drug Tysabri, (formerly known as Antegren) as a treatment for Multiple Sclerosis

Tysabri article

Attached is an article on Tysabri written by a UK consultant neurologist.

The focus of the article is about the risks with fast-tracking therapies.

The author correctly (in my view) points out that EAE is a pretty useless model of MS. He also highlights the need for neuro-protective agents.

Tysabri Efficacy

Whether you believe Tysabri should come back or not, it is useful to understand the drug's efficacy. Elan did a presentation to an investor conference today, and there are some fascinating slides which illustrate the drug's effectiveness.

66% reduction in relapse rate in Year 1
67% reduction in relapse rate over Two Years

View on Tysabri

The NMSS website includes the following request to provide views on Tysabri to the FDA.

The request is odd as it assumes we know what the risks / benefits are. The current CRAB treatments are modest at best so we are all after better treatments but who knows how much better Tysabri is (apart from the trials data and some feedback from some users)!
