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!

Another one with ITP

Just another anecdote:
2/2007: First (and only) MS-exacerbation, started with Rebif
3/2008: First round of Campath (high dose; off-label)
5/2009-1/2010: Pregnancy (we had some little troubles to conceive), delivered a perfectly healthy baby
3/2010: Second round of Campath (high dose; off-label)
7/2010: Early miscarriage (surprise pregnancy); no chromosomal abnormalities found (had a D&C)
10/2010: ITP

I went to work fine, came home at night still feeling perfectly fine only to discover my legs were covered ...

Male fertility

I know there's been a discussion about this, but it seemed to focus on females. Have any of you males who've had campath either sperm banked before it, had any counselling about it or had any drop in fertility?
