geena, Campath-1H is a potentially new treatment for Multiple Sclerosis or MS. The scientific name for Campath-1H is alemtuzumab. The drug is a monoclonal antibody designed to target that part of the immune system which is assumed to be harming people with MS (PwMS). It has been developed for a number of years, and has already been used as a treatment for B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. To the best of my knowledge, it is not in widespread use yet not yet having passed all the phases of trials. I believe, that a phase III extension study is also planned/being carried out around the world to determine whether it could help those with an early form of MS, and expected to complete in 2014. It takes some time for a new drug to be passed as safe. For example for a cancer drug, as with most drugs, there are 3 main phases of clinical trials that all new drugs have to go through before they can be licensed and prescribed for patients - Phase 1 trials recruit a small number of patients (up to about 30) to try to find out about drug side effects and the best dose to give. Phase 2 trials recruit more patients (up to about 50) and look at the effect the drug has on different types of cancer. Phase 3 trials are much bigger (100s or even 1000s of patients), and compare new treatments to the standard treatments to see which is better. Although many drugs or products start life in phase 1 trials, they don’t all get as far as phase 3 trials and the licensing process. There are also phase 4 trials. These are carried out after a drug has a license. They aim to find out more about the longer term risks and benefits and how well the drug works when it’s used more widely. I do not expect to see this drug readily available for some time to come. You mention a "Guy in Italy" - you are here, probably referring to the Italian Dr. Paolo Zamboni, who put forward the idea that many types of MS are actually caused by a blockage of the pathways that remove excess iron from the brain - and by simply clearing out a couple of major veins to reopen the blood flow, the root cause of the disease could be eliminated. This was publicised in 2009, and one of the biggest hurdles researchers faced has been the reluctance of neurologists to get behind the trials. However, it was reported in February of this year - 2011- that a host of trial information is scheduled to become available within the next 6 to 12 months. (Edited for spelling mistakes - sorry!) ALL ANSWERS SHOULD BE THOROUGHLY RESEARCHED, IN ANY FORUM AND ESPECIALLY IN THIS ONE. - MANY ANSWERS ARE FLAWED. It is extremely important to obtain an accurate diagnosis before trying to find a cure. Many diseases and conditions share common symptoms.

Sounds like Monoclonal Antibody-Types listed below: Alemtuzumab (Campath) Chronic lymphocytic leukemia Bevacizumab (Avastin) Brain cancer Breast cancer Colon cancer Kidney cancer Lung cancer Cetuximab (Erbitux) Colon cancer Head and neck cancers Ibritumomab (Zevalin) Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma Ofatumumab (Arzerra) Chronic lymphocytic leukemia Panitumumab (Vectibix) Colon cancer Rituximab (Rituxan) Chronic lymphocytic leukemia Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma Tositumomab (Bexxar) Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma Trastuzumab (Herceptin) Breast cancer Stomach cancer Common side effects In general, the more-common side effects caused by monoclonal antibody drugs include: *Allergic reactions, such as hives or itching *Flu-like signs and symptoms, including chills, fatigue, fever, and muscle aches and pains *Nausea *Diarrhea *Skin rashes Serious side effects Serious, but rare, side effects of monoclonal antibody therapy may include: *Infusion reactions. Severe allergy-like reactions can occur and, in very few cases, lead to death. You may receive medicine to block an allergic reaction before you begin monoclonal antibody treatment. Infusion reactions usually occur while treatment is being administered or soon after, so your health care team will watch you closely for a reaction. *Dangerously low blood cell counts. Low levels of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets may lead to serious complications. *Heart problems. Certain monoclonal antibodies may cause heart problems, including heart failure and a small risk of heart attack. *Skin problems. Sores and rashes on your skin can lead to serious infections in some cases. Serious sores can also occur on the tissue that lines your cheeks and gums (mucosa). *Bleeding. Some of the monoclonal antibody drugs are designed to stop cancer from forming new blood vessels. There have been reports that these medications can cause bleeding Wake him, bleeding is not a good sign..he needs to see the doc, Pronto! Answered by Melina Monsegur 5 months ago.
Well, you should most definatly make sure the doctor is aware of all this. I was pretty hateful for a while during my second diagnosis. I was ANGRY that it had come back and ruined my plans. I had just started working again from the first time. I was doing good with my work, I had a financial savings plan to help us find a better house to rent and to get me a newer used car that wasnt falling apart and some other things. My hair had just gotten to a length I half way liked. And then here comes cancer, all over again. I mean, I was seriously soooo angry. Still am to a point, that second time changed a lot about my life on a permnent level. I did some things like that. I wanted to do what I wanted to do and what I wanted to do only. I ignored a lot of the neutropenic precautions because I resented needing them again. And the more the people around me tried to force me to do the things I was supposed to be doing or wouldnt let me do things I wasnt supposed to do, the worse it made me. Obviously, if he isnt capable of driving, dont let him. But if you are fighting about going out in public or washing hands or whatever else... dont. Remember that he IS an adult and it IS his life. I wonder if he is angry like that. I mean, its common knowledge that lung cancer is still a really bad diagnosis if not terminal. Would you not be angry if you suddenly found out your life was most certainly coming to an end, abruptly? You could try to encourage him to see a psychologist, but in this state of anger, he probably wont. Although, as mentioned above, you said he had radiation to the brain. If he has any of the cancer in his brain, that could explain a lot of his attitude and behavior, and for that reason, you need to make sure his docs are aware. If he is confusing reality with dreams, that could either be cancer in the brain, or maybe the narcotics. I have very vivid dreams anyways, and when I am taking that amount of narcotics, it sometimes gets a lil fuzzy the difference between the two as well. Whatever the reason, this may be why he refuses to sleep even when he is tired. You should also find out if anything about his meds is steroidal. The add steroids to the chemo cocktail all the time today. Its in an effort to combat weight loss during chemo, but depending on the dose he is getting, that could be a source or this behavior.

Cancer is the term which encompasses a very complex group which contains wide range of cancerous diseases. This is considered as a class of diseases which is being characterized by the out-of-control cell growth. The classification is based on the type of the cell which is initially affected. It will harm your body when the damaged cells are dividing uncontrollably and forms masses or lumps of tissues. This is referred to as tumors. Usually the tumors will grow and will interfere with the nervous, digestive as well as circulatory systems. This in turn can even release some hormones which will alter the functions of your body. Those tumors which are occurring only at a single place and demonstrating limited growth will be considered as benign. Answered by Bridgette Chatman 5 months ago.

Your oncologist should have already given your father an RX for whatever type of "magic mouthwash" would best fit his situation. Call your oncologist's nurse in the AM and ask about getting a magic mouthwash prescription. In the meantime try some OTC Biotene mouthwash but this is a poor substitute for the variety of prescription preparations available specifically for situations like you are describing. Do a search for magic mouthwash and you can read about some of the various formulas that are commonly used. If it was my Dad I'd be waking up the oncologist tomorrow AM.

There is a "swish and swallow" solution that sometimes helps with pain. It is a combination of benadryl liquid, maalox and a topical anesthetic like xylocaine. You won't be able to get the xylocaine over the counter - you'll need a prescription for it. However, they do make numbing throat spray that your dad could spray directly in his throat. Even using a 1:1 solution of maalox and benadryl to swallow might make things feel better for awhile. The best thing you can do right now is to encourage your dad to drink. He may not feel like eating, but remind him to drink so that he does not get dehydrated. If he can't drink much, try ice chips or mashed popsicles. Unfortunately, it will just take some time for his throat to heal. The best things you can do now are to try some things he can swallow to help with the pain and to help him get some fluids down. I'm sorry he's having such a hard time. I'll remember him in my prayers. God bless. Answered by Melba Cheatwood 5 months ago.
I used a half Maalox, half benadryl solution. However, I did not swallow it. I used it every 4 hours or so. It's not a cure, but it helped. I also ate soft foods like jello, pudding and drank Gatorade. I tended to like soft cold foods and then after a few days I could eat warm food, like creamy chicken soup.

Has anyone ever heard of cord blood used as a possible treatment to kidney failure. I've searched the web and have gathered a lot of information on what they have been doing in pushing the envelope on kidney failure treatments. I know they are also working with whipping out a persons marrow and replacing it with the donors marrow to offset rejection. Also, I've seen on the news how the U of Minnesota has recently found a way to erase dna in an organ and replacing it with ones own Dna to trick the immune system into thinking that its their own organ. I'm really interested in what others have to say because I'm currently rejecting my 3rd kidney transplant. I'm only 22 yrs old and will try everything to fight what I have now to make a comeback for my family and my new born son. Funny thing is we were going to safe his cord blood from when he was born but we didn't have any money and my kidney was working perfectly. Well any comments would be greatly appreciated!

Ray, I'm sorry to hear about your kidneys!! :( That's terrible but it's good you'll fight it.... Cord blood is used as an "unproved" treatment (but highly effective) for cerebral palsy/oxygen deprivation/brain disorders.... but as for kidneys... it's unsure. The thing with stem cell is that they have HIGH potential because they act like embryonic cells, which means they can potentially form into anything.... thus helping make more cells, however specialized they are. They're also "young and fresh." I'm sure you know this.... So... to answer you, it SEEMS possible but there's not enough information nor is it a standard practice yet. So even if you had banked your son's cord blood, it's unsure if you could've gotten someone to try, unless it was in another country. Don't feel bad. As for the U of Minn study, I don't know enough about that. I would think though that the technology is not advanced enough and that they'd want to do that process of injecting cells immediately after the transplant... Why not contact them? It can't hurt.... call them and keep asking and asking....ask for the doctor in charge of the study. Sometimes, if they're doing animal studies only and don't have FDA approval for people, you can make a claim to the FDA that it's cruel to withdraw what is a possible treatment to you, and that you have no other good options anyway... it works a lot. I'm sure you've tried all the following but have you tried: a) Switching your transplant acceptance medicine. Some people's bodies don't work too well on specific medicines but others work wonders... totally recommend this one. (Campath-1H, tacrolimus-- most common I think, any others not tried yet, mycophenolate mofetil)... the last is being done in research studies right now b) Lowering your immune system MORE, so your body doesn't work so hard to reject what it recognizes as a "foreign body" (immunosuppressing) c) Hemodialysis ("restarting" the system, essentially, by pumping blood through your body that's been filtered through a machine) d) Checking your diet top to bottom... like for example avoid salty foods which force your kidneys to work harder e) Dialysis through your stomach ... sounds weird but it can work as an alternate "kidney" if done properly f) finding a research study to be enrolled in... if it's a placebo vs real thing test and you suspect you're in the placebo study, get out.

Not sure about the rejection details, but I know you have to really stick to your anti-rejection drug regimen and not skip any doses. As for keeping kidneys working: 1. keeping your blood pressure under control if it is high helps. Calcium, low salt, rice or other soluable fiber foods (absorbs salt in the gut) help keep blood pressure under control. 2. a vegetarian diet could help. Too much protein overworks the kidneys...they have to turn excess protein into ammonia/urea waste by products. 3. Watch taking too much aspirin or NSAIDS (aspirin, naproxen, ibuprofen) which are filtered through the kidneys. (Tylenol is filtered through the liver.) 4. If you are diabetic, be sure to keep your diabetes under control. High blood glucose levels can damage small blood vessels and nerves in the kidneys. 5. Prayer can't hurt either. Note that these are just suggestions and you should check with your doctor first before trying anything new. It sounds like the answer above mine is very detailed.
