Brief Summary:

Progressive multifocal leucoencephalopathy (PML) is a demyelinating disease caused by John Cunningham virus (JCV) reactivation. Numerous molecules have been overstated because there were inaccurately tested in non-rigorous clinical trial.

The objective is to draw lessons from repeatedly false hopes of unconfirmed PML treatments that might contribute to prescribing ineffective drugs on claimed efficacy in case reports or small series and by failing to respect the need for clinical trial evaluation before authorizing their widespread use.
