    Hello BB,

    I'm not sure what you are referring to when you ask about PLM. You may be thinking about Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy(PML), which is a rare and potentially fatal brain disease which is caused by the JC Virus.

    If this is what you are referring to here are some links that may be helpful:
    The MS Disease-Modifying Medications

    PML Consortium

    If you are trying to find information about something else, please provide some additional information and we would be happy to help.
