PML
Dec 5, 2000

Just found out I do have it, what if anything can be done,

I am on the cocktails and infusion treatments, have lost use of my left arm and leg already, mind is getting foggy

I go to Kaiser Permenante. I want to know what the new if any treatments for this are.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

The best treatment is potent combination therapy for HIV. Intravenous cidofovir is an experimental drug for this condition, although it is active against that virus that causes PML in the test tube. Ask your doctor about it.
