I spoke with the research nurse at Westmead today. She indicated she was heavily involved with the Campath trials in NSW. She also told me that they have two trials; one is recruiting, and the other will start in about a month.
The one she is currently recruiting for, is for patients who have not undergone any standard treatment (i.e. CRABS). I asked her if she wanted me to pass out her number, and she said yes. She has concerns about enrolling for the first trial.

I think the following two are the trials she is running with, but it would be best to call her and talk. I found you will never catch her during the day, but in the morning, she is on her phone (so I kept ringing till I got through); she did return my call from a message I left on her answering machine anyway.
I am out of the first one because I have had rebif treatment, and I may be out of the second one, as I realised it "wasn't working for me" in less than six months, and stopped. Also, although my diagnosis was in 2005, my first symptoms were around 1995 (ie Over ten years). She is ringing Genzyme (USA) to see if I can qualify. So, I may be out!
