Goof News For Lemtrada (alemtuzumab)

This is good news goingvto ask my doctor to put me on this. I have failed rebif and my liver didnt tolerate tysabri after 10 infusions. I really didnt like the side effect profile from tecfidera and was hoping this was gonna get approved.

thanks for the update

That's great news, Kyle!  It's certainly a drug I'd consider, especially if for some reason I can't take Tysabri any longer.
