I am here in the US, and I have had a 17 Tysabri infusions so far.
On an Australian MS website, someone posted that Tysabri is being made available for 20 MS patients, until the PBS starts to fund it in April, 2008.
You/Neurologist need to contact Biogen (the manufacturer of Tysabri.

Also, below are the links to Biogen's website, and the website of Élan (the company that discovered Tysabri and is the copartner of Biogen for Tysabri). Hope this information helps. All my best, Lauren:
