i've taken 76 injections of tysabri, recently jc virus showed positive about 4.08. can i know the next step?
I encourage you to talk to your doctor about your next step.
You can read more about your treatment options in our brochure, The MS Disease-Modifying Medications.
The brochure also has more information about the JC virus beginning on page 24.

thank you. can you tell me what kind of drug to be taken after stopping tysabri since jcv is positive?
I have been undergoing Tysabri infusions for four or five years. I am JC virus positive, but do not have PML. I am tested every six months. I don't know what the number is, but the neurologist said that when I hit a certain number that he would pull me off of Tysabri. Nobody mentioned what the alternative drug that I would be on. Please see your neurologist to find out if you have PML yet or not. Good luck. Keep in touch.
