I am a Patient Advocate for Biogen/IDEC, the company that makes
Tysabri. I participate in and/or speak at various MS events
throughout the Midwest. I became a Patient Advocate four years after
starting Tysabri in November of 2006.
Like the disease itself, the drugs for MS will affect everyone
differently. Yes, I started walking one day after my 3rd infusion of
Tysabri, but that doesn't mean everyone will notice a change that
quickly. Many have, but others have not.

For those who don't know: Yes, I believe
CCSVI is a joke.
Just like the issue of medical marijuana, there is no CLINICAL proof
that the Liberation procedure (or pot) is helping anyone with MS, or that
CCSVI is even a condition at all.
I think most people with MS know about CCSVI.

Of course, Be skeptical; It was only when the link between patents
owned by Zamboni and those used in the machines required to diagnose
the condition that
full skepticism was raised.
Yep, the CCSVI theory is crap andTAPS
is playing for the science in this so-called procedure.;
I am taking the drug "TYSABRI" for my MS and have been on it since
November of 2006. I get an IV infusion once every 28 days.
