Why take the most modern DMTs?

This post from the Barts MS blog stats it with science!

Having had MS for 26y I feel that I have largely missed out on the brain health benefits of modern DMTs. In an odd sort of way I envy the younger and newly diagnosed people (not the MS part, that sucks) because of the increase in options and the efficacy of treatments available.

Have a read of some interesting research. The results and methodology are valid, studies of greater numbers are underway.

Interesting read and I read the evidence in multiple articles. I am grateful for the DMTs, but the medical aids in South Africa only give first line treatment and not the high efficancy treatment untill you dont respond to “ligter” DMTs as they dont feel you need it yet. If I can go on the high efficancy DMTs then I have a greater chance of having an occupation to have an income to pay for the medical aid and not cash in any diaability insurances from the same company. Wondering if I can travel to England every 6 months to pay for ocrevus treatment. I am very keen on ocrevus. In South africa I will only be able to go on ocrevus if the other DMTs dont work and sitting with more disability.
