AAN abstract

Dear all,

There are a few Alemtuzumab (Campath) abstracts being presented at the AAN conference in April.

As someone who has had their two infusions - the last being 27 months ago, it's quite comforting that the treatment effect seems to hold good for the majority of patient for at least four years after treatment.

I now have an annual MRI and a six-monthly check-up. My last MRI (with contrast) in December 2009 showed no signs of any disease activity which fitted with the clinical assessment.

I was pleased to read that some of the Revimmune patients were also seeing similar results.

Hey Ian,
I am pleased you have benefited from Campath.
How quickly was your MS progressing before the campath? and how long had you had MS for?

Do you have to have enhancing lesions on your MRI to take Campath?

I've reluctantly PM'd you my e-mail address.

PLEASE just forward MS research papers not any of your collection of under-the-counter material. That photo of Dignan and Jimmylegs which you sent last October must have broken the decency laws in 132 different countries - and I always thought of Canadians as reserved people!

burst your bubble huh brom? :twisted:
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range
