Here is My Question:
Would Kesimpta be a good alternative to Ocrevus if I'm worried about potentially being exposed to COVID during an infusion? Do you know if I might experience a rebound after discontinuing Ocrevus? Is there an optimal amount of time after stopping Ocrevus before starting Kesimpta? And lastly, does the fact that Kesimpta has to be administered every month vs every 6 months mean my immune response might come back more quickly if I get COVID and stop taking it while I fight the disease? Many thanks!
Very good questions about switching from Ocrevus to ofatumumab (Kemsimta). Here are my responses
