2 reliable sources indicate as long as TB has been ruled out, it's ok to begin Ocrevus.

Just waiting on my insurance approval now 😊

I’m getting ready to start O as well. Hepatitis B antibodies and JC virus antibodies were checked as well. Because I’m negative for hepatitis B antibodies, they want me to get the hepatitis B vaccine. Just wanted to share the testing that I’ve had.

I wonder how many starting ocrevus are asked to get tested for jcv? And whether you were on prior meds that might increase your risk jcv
