BACKGROUND Natalizumab treatment is associated with progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) development. Treatment duration, prior immunosuppressant use, and JCV serostatus are currently used for risk stratification, but PML incidence stays high. Anti-JCV antibody index and L-selectin (CD62L) have been proposed as additional risk stratification parameters. OBJECTIVE This study aimed at verifying and integrating both parameters into one algorithm for risk stratification. METHODS… CONTINUE READING
