Lemtrada At A Glance

If you’ve been considering your treatment options for relapsing MS, it may be time for you and your healthcare provider to discuss LEMTRADA.

5 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT LEMTRADA:

  1. LEMTRADA is a prescription infusion medicine used to treat adults with relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS). It’s generally used in people who have tried 2 or more MS medicines that haven’t worked well enough.
  2. LEMTRADA is a relapsing MS medication that is administered in 8 doses over two years—on 5 consecutive days in round 1 and, one year later, on 3 consecutive days in round 2. You and your healthcare provider may decide that you need one or more additional rounds of treatment. If so, this would occur at least 1 year after your last round and would consist of 3 treatment days in a row. For all rounds, you will be given certain medications prior to treatment.
  3. You will be monitored monthly starting after your first infusion and continue to monitor until 4 years or longer after your last round of treatment. Because of the risks of autoimmunity, infusion reactions, and some kinds of cancers, LEMTRADA is only available through a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) program.
  4. LEMTRADA was studied vs Rebif® (interferon beta-1a) in a 2-year study. Take a look at the clinical study results.
  5. LEMTRADA offers all patients additional resources and support, including financial assistance for eligible patients, through the MS One to One® program.
