Rituximab

Your nerve disorder and a faulty immune response has many implications on your everyday function and your long-term health. Maintaining overall health, and especially good blood health, are important aspects of your treatment. The staff at the Nerve Disorders Center will work with you to determine the right approach to treating your disorder.

Rituximab, which is sometimes sold under the brand names Rituxan, MabThera and Zytux, is a drug that is used to treat some autoimmune diseases. This drug attacks the cells that harm your immune system cells. Your doctor may suggest rituximab for the treatment of your nerve disorder.
