MYJ | Another dose of Rituxan, aka Rituximab

We are back to COH today and for the second time this week for infusion therapy. This time it is with a substance called Rituximab (Rituxan) and the clinical explanation is provided with these links to my previous blog posts on the subject, as well as A GOOGLE on the topic. Our visit to the infusion center Wednesday for IVIG went well and today's blood tests and visit with Dr. Nakamura will give us clues as to the efficacy of these immune-system-restoration efforts. Overall, I feel good and expect the results to be positive.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rituximab, sold under the trade names Rituxan and MabThera, is a chimeric monoclonal antibody against the protein CD20, which is primarily found on the surface of B cells. Rituximab is used in the treatment of many lymphomas, leukemias, and some autoimmune disorders.
