per the article:

"....A few months later she is "99 per cent back to normal"

Isn't that the case for most with RRMS whether they take drugs of any kind or not? How do they know with certainty it was the Ocrevus?

N's of one may or may not be interesting, but they're certainly meaningless statistically.

If anyone is interested, there is a new, closed Facebook group that was started on April 13, 2018 specifically for PPMS, SPMS and Ocrevus.

Based on all the continually emerging data, I agree, wonder drug. First infusions 1 month post diagnosis.

New results from clinical studies show ocrevus results in some patients
