It is why they are starting a JCV test for all the Ty people here. If you have the virus you are done w/ Ty I believe.

The wiki for PML says IT IS caused by the virus. I just don't think they know for sure do they?

OK, so there was one person who died in the US. We still have pretty good odds.

My neuro is leaving it up to me, others are reporting the same, I have seen at least one that is saying neuro says + test means end of ty therapy.

Many are choosing to not get tested( I don't get this). I understand that it is still an unknown, but at least you have one more bit of info.

I don't know what I am going to do at this point, but my plan now is to be back in the chair getting number 49 Nov 15th.
