"FDA worked with the company to make sure this information, even though preliminary, was given to physicians and patients as soon as possible and supports their decision to voluntarily suspend marketing as well as the use of the product in clinical trials.
At the same time, FDA continues to believe Tysabri offers great hope to MS patients," said Dr. Steven Galson, Acting Director, FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER).
"Patients being treated with Tysabri should contact their physician to discuss appropriate alternative treatments while these reports are being evaluated," added Dr. Galson.
