Reply To: rituxin for people WITHOUT the anti-mag type neuropathy

HI Lori,
I imagine it would be even more productive for you, as the anti mag is much more difficult to treat than regular cidp. Now that you mention it, I don’t remember anyone w/out anti mag posting. However, I do think I remember it being part of the protocol for the stem cell recipients along with the cytoxan. Do cytoxan and rituxan have the same risks? If so, did your doc ever mention cytoxan? There are members on the site that have been in remmission after the cytoxan treatment. Pam H and Ryan (blue eyes member name I think). Just thinking out loud. I wonder about cytoxan for us once puberty is over and if we still have this. It would be nice to be done and over with this. At his age, the risk of cancer from treatments (chemo drugs), even from cat scans is higher than that of an older person.
