Tysabri (brand name or Natalizumab the drug name) is a highly effective treatment which is delivered once a month by transfusion (you are connected up to a drip (via a cannula in your arm) and sit in hospital for a few hours - first the drug which takes about 90 minutes and then a saline flush which takes around 15). It has almost no side-effects if you are JC negative (you are tested for this) but carries risks if you are - ask your consultant. There are lots of conversations about it here:
