I think it's certain that the situation regarding Campath is the same as that with Tovaxin in that the most a person can or should expect from Campath is for progression to stop. Sometimes the healing process will be able to reverse the degree of disability but the treatment shouldn't be judged by whether or not EDSS lowers.bromley wrote:And many on the Campath have seen a reduction in EDSS. Giving a blood sample for testing once a month is a small inconvenience to pay for this level of efficacy.

All pts received 3 days of IV methylprednisolone at M0, M12, and M24.
My advice to you (friendly advice) - keep up with the abx, cut out the fags and booze, shave off the beard, get your hair cut, and prepare for a few more treatment options in the not too distant future.
