Alemtuzumab is an injectable drug that is used to treat B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The drug is injected into the patient’s veins on a regular basis to combat cancer cells. Doctors usually begin by putting the patient on a low dose of the drug and then gradually raise the dose as the body begins to tolerate it.
