32554284 Alemtuzumab is an immunosuppressive drug that induces lymphocytes depletion. […] In this study, we aimed to evaluate the frequency and severity of COVID-19 in a case series of patients treated with alemtuzumab in our center. […] Mean time from the last dose of Alemtuzumab was 9.80 ± 6.64 months, and last lymphocyte count was 760 ± 231 / μL. […] Conversely, we did not find statistically significant differences regarding age, EDSS, last lymphocyte count, and months since the last dose of alemtuzumab administered between patients having or not symptoms of COVID-19. […] Our data suggest that patients receiving alemtuzumab showed very mild symptoms of COVID-19. […] Further research about alemtuzumab and their role in COVID-infection is necessary to confirm these preliminary findings.
