Practical Clinical Guidelines for Natalizumab Treatment in Patients With Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis.

Natalizumab (TYSABRI®) was the first high-efficacy monoclonal antibody disease-modifying therapy (DMT) approved as a monotherapy for the treatment of adults with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS), including clinically isolated syndrome, relapsing-remitting MS, and active secondary progressive MS. Because natalizumab is administered by intravenous infusion, infusion nurses play a key role in the care of natalizumab-treated patients. In the 16 years since approval, substantial data have been gathered on the long-term, real-world effectiveness and safety of natalizumab. This article provides a synopsis of this data, as well as practical information for optimizing patient care. This includes information on strategies to mitigate the risk of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy in natalizumab-treated patients, natalizumab use during pregnancy, and use with vaccines. It also includes guidance on the preparation and administration of natalizumab and monitoring of natalizumab-treated patients.
