With this method, we can see how long Natalizumab works after the drug is given. This is of importance, as we can assure that the treatment is still effective, even if infusions are spaced out or after therapy has been stopped. MS can flare up when the medication is not given for longer periods of time as white blood cells can again enter the brain. On the other hand, it is often attempted to space out infusions as much as possible to minimise the risk of side effects.
