There are no known interventions that can reliably prevent PML or adequately treat PML if it occurs. Many patients with PML have weakened immune systems. Restoring the immune system may help in recovering from some PML symptoms, however, some of the serious effects of the disease are often permanent.1

If you are diagnosed with PML associated with certain medications, it is likely that your doctor will have you discontinue the use of these medications to help restore your immune system.2In certain cases, your doctor may also perform plasma exchange, which will help remove any remaining medication from your body and which is designed to help restore your immune system.
