The Story of Developing Campath for the Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis
Who's speaking at this Webinar?
Professor Neuroimmunology University of Cambridge
The autoimmune disease multiple sclerosis (MS) targets the protective myelin sheath that coats axons in the central nervous system. MS can cause lifelong disability, and strike early in life, meaning developing effective therapies has been a primary aim of research.
Professor Alasdair Coles has been involved in the development of drugs to treat MS for over twenty years. His work with Alastair Compston was instrumental in the identification of Campath (Alemtuzumab), a humanized monoclonal antibody, as an effective treatment for MS.
In this webinar, Professor Coles will outline the history of Campath’s development, exploring how drug companies, scientists and patients all play a role in the success of pharmacological treatment.
