Month 24

My study is Care MS 1. This is Month 24. entering into the extension phase and just learned I received the 25mg dose both times. My MRI showed no new changes.

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 ...

Sorry guys, I've moved on to CCSVI !!
I mean, that's where I've moved my proverbial eggs to.
I think campath slowed down a wicked downward spiral but there's something out here that's keeping me down. Or I mean my wbc attack ON. whatever i don't know, but campath's not enough. i have to admit my diet is crap...but beyond that i don't know what else to do to to get better.
I accepted, bought ...

Campath worked great for me for 6 months, then RELAPSE CITY

I was in the CAMMS323 trial and I received Campath (although I still do not know the dosage). I was only diagnosed with RRMS for one year and 2 months before going into the trial. I am currently at month 11, and will likely be pulled out of the study.

I tolerated the infusions very well, and even continued to improve for 6 months after the initial set of infusions, but right around the 6 ...

Campath round one 6 weeks ago

So far no side effects to speak of and to be honest not real sure what to expect. I went into this without any real expectations. I just trusted my doctors to lead me in a direction that I assume they are certainly more knowledgeable about. Now I have found this site and am curious as to any stories pertaining to possible changes specifically in regards to bladder issues. My most annoying MS symptom is ...
