When I was first diagnosed in May 2004, I came across articles on Campath on the UK MS Society website. There was a link to a patient with very active RRMS (David's story) who set out his experience. His diary ended pretty much after his second infusion. Two years on, he has provided an update - set out below. He seems to be doing well.

Of course it is only one person's experience ...
