Campath Rash

I was treated with my second round of Campath in early May. In June I started with a rash that first appeared on my head around my hairline. I initially thought it was the new shampoo I bought so I quit using it. The rash continued and popped up on my torso. I went to my neurologist/study doctor to let him have a look. He sent me to a dermatologist who confirmed that it was ...

Campath and malignancy

I think that we all know the risks of an autoimmune disease if you take the campath option, but does anyone know if there is a risk of cancer? I think that in the phase 2 trial they had 3 cases of cancer in the campth group (breast, cervical and lymphoma) v. one in the control group (colon) which they felt was statistically irrelevant, although they felt that the lymphoma might be related to the ...

Price of CAMPATH soon to SKYROCKET?

If and when they approve Campath late next year I fear the price of a round of treatment will jump from $5,000 to $25,000, especially since Genzyme would not be making much money on an MS treatment that only has to be used two years in a row every 4 years (and maybe even every 5-6 years). Shareholders, do the math: 2 years of Rebif = $52,000 (effective for only 2 years). 2 years of ...

Protocol update

I was considering ccvsi. I've got a request in at a vascular doctors office since I've been denied a second round of campath due to low lymphocyte counts that didn't rebound in time. After making the ccvsi call and gearing up to pursue it I got a call from my campath study neurologists office. Genzyme is making a tweak to the study protocol. Now at month 14 after the first dose if you didn't qualify ...

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.
