Tysabri Coverage

Medicare Coverage Available for New MS Drug: Tysabri

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tysabri, the new medication for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS), is covered by Medicare. Per the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Tysabri is used to treat patients with relapsing forms of MS to reduce the frequency of symptom flare-ups or exacerbations of the disease.

A LITTLE HELP

HELLO ALL,

WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE ON THIS SITE HAS STARTED TYSABRI. MY DOCTOR TOLD ME YESTERDAY SHE WANTS ME ON IT, ALONG WITH AVONEX. WE HAVE TO PUT ALL INFO INTO INSURANCE TO SEE WHAT THEY WILL COVER, BUT WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE HAD ANY EXPERIENCES THEY COULD SHARE REGARDING THIS NEW MED. ANY FEEDBACK WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU

tysabri users, how are your relapses?

I was just wondering, if anyone who has begun taking the tysabri treatments, has been doing with flare ups? have you noticed that they are less frequent, more frequent, or the same?

my best friend starts hers on jan 12th. but she has started another flare up within a week and a half of the last one (that lasted 3 weeks), and she couldn't walk or speak real well, and could not eat (due to ...

Tysabri Webcast

Last night, at John Hopkins Univ., there was a webcast for medical professionals. All the info is not available as yet but here is a synopsis of what was said.

The presenters were paid by Biogen. They did a good job of not showing bias, one way or the other, towards Tysabri.

The questions were solicited by the Consortium in advance and consolidated for the webcast. No additional questions were allowed during the presentation.

Earlier Natalizumab Trial

I know that some readers may think that I make-up and create "stories" about Tysabri (aka Natalizumab). That, I simply don't do! Today I came across this link that was posted on the Brain Talk MS Forum. It was published by The New England Journal of Medicine which doesn't need an introduction to most people.

This is a short abstract of an earlier Natalizumab trial that shows totally different results than the Tysabri trials. How ...

Tysabri: Fine Young Cannibal or CRAB's New Partner in Crime

I would like to hear some discussion on the possible meaning of the one-year SENTINEL trial information that was recently released. Right now, I am leaning toward pushing for combination therapy when I make the leap to Tysabri. But I would really like to be talked out of continuing the Avonex. The side effects have eased this past month (after a year on treatment), but it still feels as though I am playing Russian Roulette ...
