Campath 12mg - 2nd

Hello everybody
I'm writing here in behalf of my friend from Poland. He's in his 20's, asked me for help to translate. He's looking for anybody who already took second dose (second part?) of 12mg Campath. He would like to know is there any side effects. Please share your opinions. It's really tough to get any info at Polish discussion forums, that's why he decided to ask for info here. Thank you for any help.

AAN abstract

Dear all,

There are a few Alemtuzumab (Campath) abstracts being presented at the AAN conference in April.

As someone who has had their two infusions - the last being 27 months ago, it's quite comforting that the treatment effect seems to hold good for the majority of patient for at least four years after treatment.

Campath/Novantrone

Hi,

My MS has gradually worsened (walking more unstable) over a year, and my neuro suggested I look at Novantrone as an option -- see ehat 3 doses woul;d do etc.

I was wondering though, if I went for this option would it complicate using Campath -- or Revimmune -- in the future? Was thinking in terms of supressed immunity with a chemo drug and then problems using a monoclonal antibody.

Any input welcome! Also ...

I accepted, bought ...
