... maintenance therapy for follicular lymphoma. It has gone on 14 weeks since last ritoxan treatment with severe neutropenia, responsive only temporarily to neupogen or neulasta. Any suggestions?
Yes, it happened to me. My white cell count and neutrophils have improved but still low. After chemo, they were improving. My white cell count was 3.2 and neutrophils were 1.8, then they just crashed. They dropped to .65 and .2 for neutrophils. I'm also doing Rituxan maintenance.
I receive two doses of Rituxan two weeks apart every six months for treatment of Myasthenia Gravis, an autoimmune disease. I had a dose in February and a normal CBC in April. I was hospitalized in July for a neutropenic infection with white counts at 0.7 and neutrophils at 0.00. After three shots of Neupogen, I am back in the normal range. I'm wondering if I can expect to stay there and if it will be safe to take Rituxan again. Any thoughts?
