Does having Rituximab lower your immune system after having it?
Husband has Wegeners Granulomatosis

Yes, Rituximab does lower one part of your immune system. The immune system has many components, and includes a cell type call leukocytes. The type of leukocyte that is affected by Ritximab are called B-cells. Rather than target the entire immune system, Rituxin targets just this one cell. You can read more about Rituximab, and get explanations to other questions here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rituximab#Autoimmune_diseases Or by looking at the most recent New England Journal of Medicine, just out. It has two published studies regarding Rituximab VS Cytoxin used to treat ANCA related vasculits (Wegener's Granulomatosis)
