Rituxan has been approved since 1997 to treat non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Rituxan uses biotechnology methods to make an antibody that reduces the amount 'B cells' which are specific immune cells. There was a single controlled trial study of 197 patients that had either WG or MPA. The researchers randomly assigned the patient Rituxan plus glucocorticoids once a week for four weeks or they gave the patient an oral cyclophosphamide plus glucocorticoids daily. The study duration at six months showed the patients that had the Rituxan with the glucocorticoids had 64 percent of the patients have complete remission. The cyclosphosphamide and glucocorticoids patients had 53 percent achieve complete remission.

If you’ve been waking up with a strange sensation in your hands, such as numbness, tingling, or burning—you might be in the first stages of carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition occurs when a nerve in the wrist of one or both hands becomes compressed, which over time weakens the muscles and causes feelings of numbness.

There may be some pain and discomfort, but the biggest indicator that carpal tunnel is present is a regular feeling of the hand “falling asleep.” If left too long, carpal tunnel can cause permanent damage to the hand, making bending the thumb and index fingers difficult. The causes of this condition are largely attributed to genetic factors; however, some studies point to work-related activities as culprits.
