    can somone point to a post

    Overall the data showed that the combination therapy with avonex and tysabri was only slightly more effective than Tysabri alone. Tysabri alone was always much better than Avonex alone. Even though they work via differeing mechanisms there was no additive benifit in clinical studies. I think dr's were cautious to just switch someone over who was taking avonex or other beta interferons. The company is going to have to figure out real fast if its an unusal event or due to the combination or due to tysabri alone. Hopefully the first. They had an all day symposium on friday on the relavent scientific medical topics with lots of specialists on the JC virus disease etc. They are going to be reviewing everyones MRI's and testing any banked blood samples.

    The FDA is going to have to make some decisions aout the benifit vs risk at some point. --as soon as the risks are clear.

    Its going to be wild ride no matter what-
