Cheryl, Hopton on Sea asked:
CamPath, the antibody you were talking about earlier, was given to my daughter in the 1990s for Wegener's granulomatosis but why are some drugs effective against more than one disease?
We put this to Professor Adrian Newland:
Adrian - In diseases such as Wegenerís which is an autoimmune disease itís the immune system, the lymphocytes that actually cause immune damage. CamPath just removes those whatever the disease and will deal with that.
Chris - Itíll take away the cell that is causing the disease so the disease gets better.
