Dear Norb,

I know in the past there was a trace of the IGM Antimag. Since my first Rituxan treatment they no longer see any evidence of it in my bloodwork. I have never been told that I actually have it? The Rituxan did not make any of my symptoms go away but it did help stabilize me.
My understanding of why my doctors are doing both treatments Rituxan & IVIG is the Rituxan will stop the antibodies from forming and the IVIG will remove any that are already attacking my nerves. Perhaps it will sustain the Rituxan for a longer period as well.

My Best Regards,
