I share your opinion that it is almost impossible to release a drug which has no side effects. I also like to revisit old stories to see how they evolved over the years. Like in this case, the withdrawal of Tysabri. I know that many MS patients were sad about the withdrawal since they obtained some excellent results with the drug, and despite the PML complication they were willing to take those chances. Today the drug is a highly popular among MS patients and with the company's latest release of the JCV antibody test, which finds patients more susceptible to PML complications, their sales will surely rise. This latest development is a good news for the patients and the company as well.
