Patient discussion about mitigation

Q. I have had ankylosing spondilitis for over 25 years. What is available at this point to mitigate the effects?

A. The mainstay of the treatment severe ankylosing spondylitis today are "anti-TNF", drugs that affect the immune system through blocking the action of a protein called TNF.

Other optional treatments include sulfasalazine and thalidomide.
Of course, all these treatments require prescription and consultation with a doctor (in this case usually rheumatologist).

The Army regulation states that "[w]hen the analysis proceeds to an EA or EIS, mitigation measures will be clearly assessed and those selected for implementation will be identified in the FNSI or the [Record of Decision].
The Army regulation also provides guidance on determining what mitigation measures are practical in light of operational and funding constraints.
Another important issue to consider is the monitoring and enforcement of mitigation measures mentioned in NEPA analyses.
(28) Enforcement monitoring is basically designed to ensure that mechanisms are built into contracts and agreements with those entities that will actually perform the mitigation. An example of enforcement monitoring is a penalty clause written into a contract for the performance of mitigation measures.
Effectiveness monitoring is a more challenging concept than enforcement monitoring in that it actually measures the effectiveness of particular mitigation measures over time.
One final issue for the environmental law practitioner to consider is the duration of the mitigation monitoring.
