    Hello Charli. I live in the U.S. I have been in the Tofersen (now Qalsody) Clinical Trial for 3 1/2 years. I have had no progression in symptoms since receiving Tofersen. It literally saved my life. I received the drug early in my diagnosis so have only slight impairments for which I am very grateful. The treatment (lumbar puncture) every 28 days is a small price to pay. When the Trial ends in another month I am hopeful that my insurance will pick up most of the cost, which would be cost prohibitive without insurance. I hope you receive the same benefits from Qalsody as I have.
