Is Lemtrada a cure for MS? I mean, I know you have to go in every month for blood tests but that’s because of the side effects of the drug. In terms of the MS, you have two rounds and your done, possibly for life (correct me if I’m wrong here). That sounds like a cure to me.
I’m on Tysabri but I don’t actually see an end in sight, and if I stopped I’ll probably rebound.
And I assume this is the same with a lot, if not all, the other DMTs.
And why are people against calling it a cure?
I’m aware of the dangers of Lemtrada e.g. the risk of secondary autoimmune disorders which is why I decided against it, but in terms of the MS, it sounds like the closest thing to a cure to me.
Anyway, interested in hearing your thoughts.
