A board to discuss the soon-to-be released drug Campath as a treatment for Multiple Sclerosis



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 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 ...

Flu shot, post campath: Yes or no?

Okay, so I am an RN. The Dept of Health in my county has mandated all healthcare workers to get vaccinated, or else have a doc's note.
I asked my research nurse, and she said okay. Then I brought it up again, and now she doesn't remember saying okay. She says that the study people say "No vaccinations!".
It's a good thing I waited a few days on the shot!
What have the rest of ...
