A board to discuss the soon-to-be released drug Campath as a treatment for Multiple Sclerosis

Had a relapse 6 months in but now stable

Like LittleLisa, I am in the clinical trial that compare Campath to Rebif. I also had a relaps after about 6 months, but was able to control the relapse with steroids.
