Use in Specific Populations

Physicians are encouraged to register patients in the pregnancy exposure registry by calling 1-866-758-2990. Antibodies, including anti-CD52 and autoantibodies, may be transferred from the mother to the fetus during pregnancy. Placental transfer of anti-thyroid antibodies resulting in neonatal Graves’ disease has been reported.

Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients less than 17 years of age have not been established. Use of LEMTRADA is not recommended in pediatric patients due to the risks of autoimmunity and infusion reactions, stroke, and because it may increase the risk of malignancies.
