All subjects took Tysabri and also had an MRI which we use for the baseline evaluation. Over 5 years, some patients remained on Tysabri, some started another drug and others were off Tysabri for a time but then restarted.
- The primary aim of this study is to define the effect of the number of natalizumab cycles on development of brain atrophy and progression of disability in originally treated patients with natalizumab in relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS). [ Time Frame: 5 years ]Evaluation of MRI images from baseline in comparison with a 5 year MRI.
- The secondary objective of this study is to define the effect of the number of natalizumab cycles on accumulation of T2-LV and T1-LV and their VW-MTR changes over 5 years. [ Time Frame: 5 years ]To evaluate any effect of the number of Tysabri cycles on lesion volume.
