    The National MS Society updated its information about Tysabri-related PML cases in MS patients. As of September 21, there were 159 PML cases:

    I wonder what the true ratio is now? Are there more or less TY users today than say, last year? Are the TY users deminishing or increasing. I know what the business pages report, but I wonder how true that is.

    If there are less users and yet more PML cases, that changes the ratio!!!

    This won't answer your question, Sally, but it may provide some other information. I just ran across it:

    Default Additions of PML

    I read a report here somewhere that would make the number increase by 9 or 10 just in the past month. I'll have to call my friend who has been on it since it was back on the market and see if her doctor has offered her the JC virus testing.
