Hi.
Myelosuppression is one of the side effects of alentuzumab (campath).  Depending on the levels of the white blood cell count and the platelet count, modification in doses can be done.  Discontinuation of the drug is also sometimes done if there is severe cytopenia, and resumed once the marrow recovers.  
Hope this helps.
