Irradiated Blood /Mavenclad

Hi all

Today received a letter from the MS nurses advising that “due to the action of Mavenclad there may be a risk of TA- GvHD and from now on in the event you need any bloods from a transfusion they should be irradiated . This is for life and requires you to carry an alert card

Has anyone else had this letter? It was 4 years ago since I had Mavenclad so didn’t really expect it …

I had Cladribine (injectable form of Mavenclad) in 2018/19 and have not been told about this. I’ll have to try and remember to bring this up next time I see Neuro or nurses.
