Best Campath Candidates?

Are the best candidates for Campath young people with highly inflamatory MS?

Thanks,

Protein detected in Urine test

I went in for the monthly blood draw and urine sample deposit and got a call that I have to go back to get my urine checked again. They detected protein in it and want to retest to see if it's still there. Has any other campather had this happen? Anybody know what it might mean in regard to campath? I didn't think it's a symptom listed for ITP.

Does anyone know where to get Campath off-label?

Hi

I currently live in Sydney Australia and am looking to get campath - trials are closed - does anyone know where it is possible to get it off-label?

I am moving to London UK next year so anyone there would be good for me too.

Thanks!
