My rheumatologist has talked a bit about Rituxan. Currently, it's used mostly as a chemo drug for cancer and in some cases for RA. Mayo Clinic is doing some work with it for Lupus. I have stubbon, recurrent pericarditis and pericardial effusion and can't seem to reduce steroid use without another episode. So she's thinking of referring me to Mayo, if they'll accept me as a patient. (I live in Minnesota, so referrals to Mayo are not uncommon.) Has anyone had any experience with Rituxan? I've read some about it, but would like to hear about any real experiences.
