In respectful disagreement with my friend Raven, it might be/could be/should be said that, in meeting the definition of "re-boot" both high dose Campath and Cyclophosphamide do pretty much the same thing in that it's thought that they both eliminate the immune system
Revimmune treatment is not a re-boot of the immune system unless it is administered in a very high dose short course. Even then I wouldn't call it a true re-boot unless it is used in AHSCT treatment where the patients marrow is taken, the immune system entirely ablated with drugs and then the marrow re-constituted from the sample.
Short of the 'full blown' AHSCT treatment I belive that Campath and high dose Revimmune are comparable.
