Leukemia Home > Campath Safety Profile

It is important to review the safety profile of any drug before beginning treatment with it, and Campath® (alemtuzumab) is no exception. For example, because some sort of side effect is expected with this product, it is important to be aware of both common Campath side effects and those that may require prompt medical care.
 
In addition, infusion reactions are possible with Campath, and they can be quite serious -- even life-threatening. To avoid this complication, your healthcare provider will start you on a small dose, increase it gradually, and give you certain medicines prior to each dose.
