My posture would improve after the infusion. My nurse who administered & observed my infusion ...

how long until Tysabri antibody testing?

I'm halfway between the first and second doses of Tysabri. When should I expect the neurologist have me tested for antibodies? 3, 6, 9 months, or longer? Would it be the same Athena Diagnostics back east that did my Avonex antibody testing? Or are there multiple labs that can do it?

Tysabri at home infusion?

My doctor said I could have the infusion anywhere I liked, and the nurses in the office have been working on trying to set up home infusions for those who want that. Which I really do.
