Receiving Campath before it is approved for ms?

I may be mistaken but I think I heard of some people being prescribed Rituxan in the past to treat their ms even if it hasn't been officially approved for ms yet. I know that Campath can have some pretty serious potential side effects. My question is; do you think someone could ever be able to receive a prescription for Campath before it is officially approved for ms?


I do not qualify to be in ...

David's story

Dear all,

When I was first diagnosed in May 2004, I came across articles on Campath on the UK MS Society website. There was a link to a patient with very active RRMS (David's story) who set out his experience. His diary ended pretty much after his second infusion. Two years on, he has provided an update - set out below. He seems to be doing well.

Of course it is only one person's experience ...

Campath interim results

This is interesting.

"Analysis of the first co-primary endpoint showed that patients taking alemtuzumab at high and low doses experienced at least a 75 percent reduction in the risk for relapse after at least two years of follow up when compared to patients treated with interferon beta-1a."

That's pretty amazing because they're not saying a 75% overall reduction, they're seeing a 75% reduction compared to Rebif! And the Campath patients have only had 2 infusions ...
