What is better Tysabri or Ocrevus?

Olga Mesh Big O is supposed to be a much better treatment. And there isn't supposed to be a risk for PML. BUT there have been patients who have developed PML after starting Ocrevus, but they can't pin point if it was caused by the use of prior treatments of Tysabri or Techfidera. Before I started it I did and still have been doing a hell of a lot of research on this and from what all I've found ALL monoclonal antibody targeting treatments carry a risk of PML.

I was diagnosed 1998 w/ numbness that went away. I failed to start therapy. I had my last episode 1999. I started Avonex 2000, Copaxone 2003 & tried Gilenya Jun 2013 for 6 months. Gilenya basically takes the white blood cells & tucks them away into the lymph nodes & the spleen. Not good. As a result, there's not many cells out there fighting foreign bodies. This is not the same process of Copaxone. So somewhere in the Southwest USA between West TX & CA, I contracted Valley Fever, aka Coccidioidomycosis (fungal infection) & had 3 different incidents from Dec 2nd to Jan 12th (UTI, cold w/ fever & a BAD infection in a legion on forehead). Starting Dec 2, I was treated w/ powerful Lanko & other antibiotics, for months! A biopsy was finally done in April on my forehead infection at the request of a family Dr....my brother. My small town Dr's cultured it but got back Clear results. They never even THOT about testing me for fungal or viral infections. Valley Fever is a nasty fungal infection! After getting that diagnosis I stopped Gilenya & went back to Copaxone & have been trouble free since then. whew~ My question is....is there any research or information about complications of treating a person w/ VF, Cocci or a fungal infection w/ Ocrevus?? I'm SO nervous about trying a "new and/or improved MS therapy now,....I want to start using this drug, I'm a prime candidate other than the fact that I contracted Valley Fever.

I am 70 years old and was told that the benefits of MS drugs decrease after age 55 and the risks out way the benefits. Studies that are conducted when a drugis approved are done on younger people, 40's and younger. Is this true?

I wasn’t diagnosed until I was 50. I believe I had it for almost 20 years before.
