Response from Dr. Henry
I havent seen any new effective/safe treatments for PML recently. Effective HIV treatment often stabilizes the process but specific JC virus treatment remains problematic. Much of the brain damage caused by PML resembles a stroke such that brain healing is highly variable dependent partly on location and extent of PML brain lesions. If any reader has a worthwhile reference on any promising treatments for PML please post. KH
