Hi I just got this letter from my neurologist that a gilenya patient was diagnosed with progressive multifocal leuconcephalopthy (PML) is an opportunistic infection caused by JC VIRUS. It’s typicall seen with tysabri patients.
This is the first case of PML SEEN IN 114,000 gilenya treated patients. However many of these patients have only received gilenya for less than 1 year ( total experience is 196,000 patients years)
I just thought I’ll point this out. Im on gilenya nearly 1 year so going to see my neurologist on Friday.
My gilenya has been dragging me down lately, I just got this letter the other day.
