WHAT IS RISTOVA 500 MG RITUXIMAB INJECTION ?
Rituximab is a cancer medication that interferes with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body. Rituximab is a monoclonal antibody. Monoclonal antibodies are a relatively new type of "targeted" cancer therapy.
Rituximab is used to treat non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Rituximab is also used in combination with another drug called methotrexate to treat symptoms of adult rheumatoid arthritis. Rituximab is also used in combination with steroid medicines to treat certain rare disorders that cause inflammation of blood vessels and other tissues in the body

Call your doctor at once if you have any of these other side effects, even if they occur several months after you receive rituximab, or after your treatment ends.
