Acute myocardial infarction associated with initial alemtuzumab infusion cycle in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis.Mult Scler Relat Disord. 2019 Sep; 34:100-102.MS
Alemtuzumab is an anti-CD52 monoclonal antibody used for the treatment of lymphoproliferative disorders and relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. We report a 30-year-old woman with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis who developed a type 2 non-ST elevated myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) during her first alemtuzumab infusion cycle. While acute coronary syndrome has been described with alemtuzumab in the treatment of lymphoma, alemtuzumab-associated cardiac ischemia in multiple sclerosis is uncommon and can occur in patients without cardiovascular risk factors.
