Cladribine

As I continue to hear of Cladribine's push towards approval, it occurred to me that I haven't really heard a lot of discussion here about it. Has anyone taken part in the trials? The data seems impressive to this point.
Thanks,
Lars

They're already applying for a license here in the UK. Which means it could be available by 2011 in the UK. However, I'm really not sure I like the idea of increasing my risk of getting cancer or life threatening infections (the guardian article has more about this)!
