has anyone experienced any side effects for rituximab treatment for pemphigus /pemphigoid? My mother is 65 yrs old and has been suffering from pemphigus /pemphigoid for 5+ yrs, we are considering rituximab treatment but not sure the side effects and the risks. Any information will be highly appreciated.
I apologize, but there appears to be no specific information about your question. I have below links to questions that have been asked about both diagnoses that may have an answer for you. There isn't even an active support group to refer you to. There are no side effects for the diseases & drug you mention.
