From PubMed (August 4, 2018). The same issue of Multiple Sclerosis Journal, which is where the article appears, includes an article entitled "Immune-mediated encephalitis with daclizumab: The final nail."  The article below is entitled "A case of immune-mediated encephalitis related to daclizumab therapy."
