Tysabri for CIDP

I don’t have any good answers to your post but picked up on your reference to the danger of PML for those of us with suppressed immune systems. I have suffered with Crohns for years and have been on 250 mg daily of Imuran for 7 years. Not only does this big dose result in some strange side effects (lots of little skin cancers for one) but just when I thought I might get approval for Rituxan, my neurologist brought up PML and scared me out of it. We sure are a lucky bunch, aren’t we? Morris
