Cladribine for treatment of people with multiple sclerosis
Please initial as appropriate
Patient Witness Not
I have read the BartsMS Patient Information Sheet “Cladribine for
treatment of people with multiple sclerosis” and have been
comprehensively informed about the risk benefit profile of
Cladribine on the basis of clinical trial evidence and the
management of potential adverse effects such as allergic reactions,
injection site reactions and infections.
I am aware Cladribine is not licensed for MS, and that I receive this
treatment at the discretion of the BartsMS team on a
compassionate and voluntary basis.
Currently licensed treatment alternatives for my MS have been
discussed with me. However, on the balance of their risk-benefit
profile in my individual case I refuse these alternatives in favour of
the treatment with Cladribine.
I agree to adhere to the monitoring protocol to ensure the safety of
my treatment with Cladribine, including review of vital signs, blood
tests, urinalysis, etc. I am aware I need to undergo regular blood
tests and I have to notify my clinical team (neurologist, MS
Specialist Nurse, GP, other health care professional involved in my
care) of any infection to decide whether immediate treatment is
required, and of any other unexpected event.
Women who may become pregnant and men who may father a
child must use safe contraception whilst on treatment with
Cladribine, and for 6 months after the last dose of Cladribine was
administered. I hereby confirm I will use appropriate contraception
measures during the treatment period and for 6 months after
receiving my last dose of Cladribine.
